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
Local Youth Groups
Our evening youth groups meet one evening a week to get out and have fun outdoors.
Whilst we tend to be out most weeks, one evening per month is usually spent indoors at a local community centre where the youth groups plan their future activities, such as summer programmes, residentials, etc. and plan any fundraising activities.
This is also an ideal time for new members and/or their parents/carers to come along and find out what TO do and join in some of the indoor fun!
