WHAT WE DO

Communities

Catalyst Youth Centre

Our Catalyst Youth Centre provides opportunities for children and young people to meet in a safe space, have fun and engage in a variety of activities. Our sessions include art and crafts, music, pool, table tennis, games consoles and team games. All our sessions are delivered by trained youth workers who will also be on hand to offer support, advice and guidance to children and young people to help them overcome issues that they are facing. We deliver two separate sessions one for children aged 7 to 11 and another for young people aged 12 to 18.

Detached Sessions

Community is at the heart of what we do at N-Gage. We love to see young people engaging with others in their neighbourhoods and bringing positive change in all areas across the city. As well as our centre-based work, we also deliver detached youth work.

This involves us engaging with young people within their own communities on streets and in parks. We use the following methods:
We have a mobile youth van that travels around various communities across South Manchester, Wythenshawe, and Trafford. The van is equipped with a wide variety of resources designed to help young people engage in positive activities and further fulfil their needs.

We also work in parks where we engage young people in physical activities such as sport and other team games. Throughout all of our sessions young people are able to access trained youth workers who can provide support, advice and guidance, offering young people an alternative to getting involved in anti-social activities.

Transform Projects

Our transform projects provide opportunities for children and young people to get involved in their local community and make a positive difference. Children and young people will plan and deliver the project based on what they feel they and their community needs. Past projects include a community clean up, improvements in a local park through planting and creating an anti-bullying programme that will support both themselves and their peers. We finish the project by visiting a local attraction, including a meal.
