The youth forum takes place every Tuesday from 4.30pm - 6.30pm and
caters for young people aged 8-16. Young people can participate in
physical, healthy eating, team building, drama, musical and
creative activities. They can learn new skills and gain
qualifications such as first aid. Young people identify the
activities in which they want to take part. They are also used as a
sounding board to ensure that the services we offer meet their

people to come, there are loads of activities on offer and you can
make new friends. We listen to your ideas on the things that you
want to see and best of all it is completely free. Activities that
we have planned for the next few months include visiting Sunderland
Marine activity centre, Durham gala theatre, and attending a
