On this page, we have started to list some of the other organisations that work with young people in our area. We haven’t listed all the great youth clubs and centres that offer activities for young people, but most of these offer additional support and advice as well. If you can recommend other organisations that should be listed here, please let us know.
MENTORING: We believe strongly in the benefits of finding a coach or mentor to gain confidence, help you achieve your goals (and. indeed, to help you work out what those goals should be in the first place). SMASH (Swindon Mentoring and Self Help) supports vulnerable young people aged 13-18 in the Swindon area, by matching them with a trained adult mentor. Inner Flame’s course, “Fire Me Up!”, can then take young people from SMASH to move their progress up to the next level.
DROP-IN ADVICE: Life is never simple, and when you need advice, support or information, it’s good to know that there are local places you can go to. THE CLIVEY, based just by the Moonrakers roundabout in Pinehurst, is one of those places. Its aim is to help young people aged 11-18.
