Impact Youth Group

Impact Youth Group are for 15+ young adults who are socially shy, anxious, low self-esteem and who want to make friends.  The group have a secret Facebook page where they can talk freely to each other and hopefully build up confidences.  It is moderated by DBS checked adults.   

The group was initially set up March 2017 and have Craig Heap (Aka The Heapster) as their Patron who is eager to get involved with them.  

So far they have had two outings; ROF59 in Newton Aycliffe and Plant Leisure for some ten pin bowling.  They are hoping to get out more but even if you do not want to attend group gatherings, hopefully the Facebook page will help you build up your confidence.

The group is handled online via the Facebook account and outings may vary and at different venues.

If you would like to join the group you should email Impact Youth Group and explain why you would like to join.
