Our Teen Zone sessions are for any child aged 11 years + who want to come along and meet others with similar issues.
Parents remain responsible for their child/young person at these events but it also means you get to talk to others who are at a similar stage and understand the demands of life with a teen.
One Friday night every month we are at The Zone! with all the usual equipment; games consoles (you are allowed to bring along 12+ rated games but you MUST seek the approval of te committee member in charge on the night first!), online laptops, Hexbugs, air hockey table and of course a tuck shop too.
The cost is £1 per child and some money for the tuck shop (parents get free tea/coffee).
We try to organise events for fun activities for the teens as often as we can - so far we have been for a jamming session at Rock 'n Pop, several go-karting sessions, a graffiti art evening, Laser-Run battles, up and down an indoor climbing wall and various others too.
The suggestions are usually the kids and we just organise them, so let us know if you have any ideas.
