Alongside the regular support and learning services we offer young people we also run projects in different local areas.

Some are year-round long-term projects like our outreach programme in Gillingham, while others are shorter special projects that allow us to try something different.

We aim to learn from our projects and use that knowledge to improve our services in future.
