YOUTH PROGRAMMES

Each group plays an important role in building confidence, sharing experiences and advice, developing friendships and support networks, and creating a community. Groups are dynamic, needs responsive, and guided by those who attend.

CARAS Groups Youth Group

Being a member of our groups has increased people’s confidence, helped them get support and access the services they need, and has been resulted in strong and lasting friendships. Young people, staff and volunteers all spend time together as part of the CARAS community.

Our activities prioritise those who are most likely to have difficulty accessing services; we work extensively with unaccompanied asylum seeking children. In 2020 more than 200 young people joined our groups, online and in-person, as restrictions allowed.

SOCIAL ACTIVITIES

CARAS offers a range of weekly social activities for young people throughout the year: youth clubs, arts sessions, gardening group. We hold holiday activities and day trips in London, special creative workshops and multi-day trips. We work with range of partner organisations to support young people accessing diverse activities: drama, music, mentoring, the NCS scheme, dance and more!

EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT

CARAS supports young people with their education by offering two weekly learning sessions: study group and computer class. We also work with range of partner organisations to offer young people access to individual learning support.

SPORTS

CARAS works with community partners to offer a wide range of sports sessions for young people: football, running and cycling, as well as girls only swimming sessions (on hold during the pandemic). We also work with range of partner organisations to support young people accessing their sessions: boxing, surfing, cricket, circus arts and many more!

PRACTICAL SUPPORT

CARAS offers weekly practical sessions for young people on topics including money, housing, immigration, wellbeing, health, education and employability. We work with established organisations to widen young people’s understanding and support networks.
