  • geared towards children aged 6yrs - 12yrs;
  • 'Open Access' - children can come and go as they choose;
  • children need to be registered on their first visit, either by the child's parent, so we know we have parents' consent to work with their child and parents know children are attending our activities - or if a child attends without a parent, we will register the child using the information they can tell us.

Detached Work


Detached work is the core of our work. Every week, Monday - Friday, afternoons and evenings, you will find us out and about on the streets of Brunswick, Grove Village and Coverdale/Newbank neighbourhoods, sat in McDonalds, or sheltering somewhere from the rain(!!), meeting, chatting with and listening to young people. These meetings and conversations are the basis of our work and the beginning of all the other activities we plan with young people.
