Energy Youth Centre
Who are we?
Energy Youth Centre is operated by the charity Groundwork South and is a purpose built young people's facility. We support young people aged 11-25 accross Eastleigh, Hampshire, offering a drop in service that targets some of the hardest to reach and vulnerable young people in the local area.
What do we do?
Through our drop in sessions we offer information, advice and guidance on a range of topics including employability, substance misuse and alcohol, mental health and personal wellbeing. We run strucutred workshops and sessions alongside fun and exciting acitivites that aim to motivate and inspire young people.
During sessions our youth workers also engage and build relationships with young people by utilsing the onsite music studio and recording facility, pool tables and games consoles.
Why are we fundraising?Our service is very popular and we regularly have over seventy young people accessing the Youth Centre during an evening session. Due to such high and frequent usage over five years , much of our sports and music equipment is in need of updating and replacing. Unfortunatley, due to frequent youth service cuts across Hampshire, Groundwork South as a charity does not have the budget to do this. For this reason we have decided to set up a crowd funding page in the hope of procuring donations for new equipment.
