for young people who have experienced one adult hurting another adult in their home
WHO WE ARE
SPACE is designed specifically for young people who have experienced one adult hurting another adult in their home (often called domestic abuse). It focuses on:
Ensuring young people know they are not the only one to have experienced hurting at home.
Giving time for young people to be themselves, to have fun and to try out new things.
Providing opportunities for young people to work through their experiences if they want to.
To be referred to the service the young people must be aged 9-16 and living or going to school in Bedford Borough.
SPACE returns week beginning 11th January, our first sessions of the year will be on zoom before we return to face to face work week beginning the 18th January (subject to COVID regulations).
For more information about sessions this term please click here.
Thank you for your patience as we navigate the new guidelines.
Merry Christmas Everyone!!
We were gutted not to be able to run our Christmas sessions face to face but it was great to see so many of you on zoom! We hope you enjoyed all the little Christmas tasks and your presents!!
For session dates and times for the next half term please click the link below.
Please note we are slowly re starting our face to face work... It will look a little different to it used to.
We will keep you informed of all the changes right here.
Our new SPACE youth club 'planets' takes place over a fortnight at various locations in Kempston. There is 8 young people and two or three staff members in each group. At each session there are tutors running workshops and you can choose to join in with activities such as art, music, sport, cooking or science... or you can just hang out with friends.
(CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO COVID 19)
Sometimes it is nice to be in a smaller group. We run separate sessions for groups of 6 - 8 young people. This year we are running art, dance, swimming and MPower (a course specifically for young people who have experienced domestic abuse).
Are you struggling with something? Do you want to come to SPACE but don’t feel ready or able to? Do you get angry and don’t know what to do with it? You may need a little time and space. We can come to school, spend time with you and give you the chance to be in control of what you want to do.
Our holiday activities take place on Thursdays in the half term and summer holidays and are a great chance for us to get out and about!
Recently we have been trampolining, rock climbing, canoeing, to escape rooms and horse riding.
Our activity choices and ideas are led by the young people at SPACE. If there is something you really want to do – let us know! We want you to have some great days out with your friends!
