CACT has delivered Royal Greenwich’s universal youth provision, Young Greenwich, since April 2012. Young Greenwich is where you can have fun, meet new friends, learn new skills and fulfil your potential if you’re 10-19 year olds and up to 25 with SEND.
Delivery occurs across Greenwich from four main hubs, with further satellite venues and parks and open spaces being utilised to ensure coverage across the borough.
Dave Berry, CACT’s Youth Service Ambassador and Capital Radio DJ, works alongside CACT staff to help to raise the profile of Young Greenwich and to increase participation in activities.
CACT have also recently implemented a virtual youth service, connecting its social media pages, a new Young Greenwich website and its own app, to ensure all communication with young people is covered, raising awareness of the provision and to increase footfall to youth service activities.
The service also delivers recognised programmes such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and has developed a Young Leaders programme to provide opportunities for identified young people to gain skills and enter a pathway to employment.
