Throughout the year 6VT offers a range of personal development opportunities, consisting of short term projects and one off days. Normally these are available to any young person using any part of cafes services. However we do also welcome new users to the cafe at any time. For the open drop in provision there is no formal referral process and young people can just turn up. For those young people who need an extra bit of support, they can access our services through our "INC U" workers.
6VT Diggin It!
The 6VT Diggin’ It project works alongside different groups to improve community spaces. The youth people at 6VT have identified local projects with outdoor space which would benefit from an improved usable landscape. Working in small teams, the young people and service users of the other projects where appropriate, work together to plan, design, budget and purchase resources to overhaul the space. Each location will be presented with a "Garden Gift" highlighting the joint work undertaken with the financial support from Cashback For Communties.
If any young people are interested in finding out more about this project please get in touch.
