Youth and Play Services including Positive Activities


At HARV we understand that when there is chaos at home that children often do not get the same opportunities. The youth service provides weekly positive activities for young people between the ages of 11 and 18.

Every week young people can access different activities:

Tuesday Evenings: Ribble Valley Youth Group

The group meets in the Ribble Valley weekly, every week the youth workers will deliver social education sessions related to  the issues surrounding young people. Once a month the group will go on a positive activity, this will include horse riding, mountain biking, go karting, raft building etc.

Wednesday Evening: Hyndburn Youth Group
