The Beat

The project has a mobile unit, The Beat, which can reach isolated areas where young people have little or no youth provision.  The Beat allows young people to plan and participate in positive activities and is equipped with tablets, TV, stereo, seating area and an information and advice wall created by our young people.  Young people are always consulted in the planning of sessions and on activities for holiday programmes and our Pizza and Paperwork nights are always good fun. The Beat has been described in the past as a “youthie on wheels”. We have worked hard over the past couple of years to raise funding and we now currently run two well established beat sessions in Bedlington and Cramlington.
