We work city-wide, but we meet young people where they are (rather than expecting them to come to us). This means we use local community centres for meetings and as pick up points, eg. Allendale Community Centre, Byker and Carnegie Building, Benwell.
The out-of-doors activities take place anywhere that is suitable - usually local parks, the beach, green space on the edge of the city, or further afield in Northumberland, the Lake District, etc. We will go wherever is appropriate for the groups’needs.
Where Tyneside Outside works
Our work with schools can take many forms as it’s important to get the right format for the groups and the school. We can deliver: curriculum based programmes focussing on enhancing subjects like science, geography or history; map reading, hill walking and orienteering to supplement programmes such as Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards, John Muir, etc; or less academic skills-based out-of-door programmes such as gardening or conservation.
Residentials: with a joint experience of over 35 years helping young people enjoy the outdoors, TO’s staff can help schools with planning and running their residential programmes to incorporate the school’s curriculum aims and a child’s needs to have fun.
