Our youth provision also delivers activity outside of Oaken Grove, through outreach and detached youth work in the community. We deliver sessions in parks and public spaces, and at other youth groups and provisions. If you are interested in an outreach session in your community group, school, or service, please get in touch.


We are always on the lookout for enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers to help us deliver our youth provision – you must be able to commit to helping weekly or fortnightly for at least 6 months. You will receive full training, support and travel expenses. Please call us if you’re interested.
