Things to do for young people in Stoke Newington

At a recent Stoke Newington Neighbourhood Forum a member of the public raised the question about what is taking place locally for young people to do.

There are two projects operating on estates in our ward: The Smalley Road Youth Project and the Yorkshire Grove Youth Project. The Smalley Road Youth Project is open every Saturday from 6-8.30pm at the Old Fire Station on Leswin Road. There are loads of activities - pool, table tennis etc. For more information, contact: magdalen.royal@hackney.gov.uk. Yorkshire Grove is open three nights a week Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 6.30-9.30pm. Contact paul.morgan@hackney.gov.uk for more information.

The local police team also organise cycle workshops for young people.

There are also a number of interventions to help support young people who might be at risk of being involved, or already involved in crime. These include one-to-one work through the Youth Inclusion and Support Panel; a Knife Crime Awareness Programme and an outreach service which tailors support to young people across North Hackney.
