Y Spaces are for young people to connect, engage in free activities, and positively impact their local community.
Each Y Space has a team of volunteer Young Leaders who get together to organise events, advocate for young people and build their skills in areas like leadership, event management and more.
If you’re keen to attend a Yspace event or you’d like to get involved in a Young Leaders Team please get in touch.
