We are sorry that because of the coronavirus pandemic we are no longer able to offer drop-in sessions or outreach work in Sherborne or Gillingham. The will restart as soon as it is safe to do so. Watch this space for updates and in the meantime, if you’d like to get in touch with our youthwork lead you can do so by phone or email.
Our centre under Cheap Street Church in Sherborne is the heart of the organisation and the home of the Rendezvous. It’s the team’s base, the place where all the planning and paperwork is done, where all our learning takes place and a lot of our one to one support and advice too. But The Rendezvous is much more than that… Watch Robbie’s story to find out what it means to him.
We’re not just here for young people when they have a problem. We like to see young people when things are going well too! Young people can use the centre during our drop in sessions that run four afternoons a week (see the calendar for details).
Come in have a cup of tea, something to eat and hang out with other young people and our team of staff and volunteers. Whilst you’re here you can use the computers; play games or just chat. It’s your space and there for you. Everyone’s welcome.
Come in and use the computers – there’s no need to book and there’s no charge. You can use them for Facebook or you can use them for work – it’s up to you. There’s also an X-Box if you’re a Fifa fan.
Young Parents – mums and dads!
We’ve been supporting young parents for 17 years and run a group that’s open to any young parents – mums or dads. It meets in the church hall every Wednesday from 12.30 to 2.30pm. Contact Sarah for more information.
If you write your own music, like to sing, want to learn to play the drums or lay down a track then if you’re under 25 you can use our music studio for free.
Outreach – Summer in the Skatepark
During the summer months when the weather is better and everyone wants to spend time outside we often join young people in the local skatepark.
We often take part in the Dragon Boat Races at the Sherborne Country Fair, take part in the local health fair and welcome young volunteers.
