Trips, socials, courses…Choose how to spend your time-credits

If you’ve got time-credits that you haven’t spent, we want to hear about things you enjoy doing so we can organise some activities especially for people living in Butetown, Riverside and Grangetown.

We can provide transport for a day-out, organise a beauty and massage day, put on some fun courses – arts and crafts / cookery/ sewing/ DIY /choir course, or just arrange a few socials to local places that we can all go to together and spend time-credits -e.g. ice-rink, museum, castle, soft-play, theatre..loads to choose from!

Upcoming Trips 2017

Our half-term trips – Gwili Railway and Cardiff Bay – were so popular that we’d like to organise some more trips soon.

Some of these may be time credit spends or ones that you can pay in cash.  Why not complete the form below and we’ll let you know when the next one is planned.

Can you support a local consortium and help change young people’s lives? Riverside Warehouse and Grangetown Boys & Girls Club are a vibrant and innovative third sector consortium working to support and challenge young people across the Riverside and Grangetown areas of the City. The consortium offers an integrated approach to the delivery of services to achieve the principal aims of engaging young people, equipping them with tools and contacts to overcome personal challenges and empower them to build their future.

Although we are only able to offer up to three sessions per week. Initially, we are hopeful that this provision will expand as we move forward and attract additional project funding.

‘Empower’ – work with young people to produce films and music projects, get involved in community issues or activities, share experiences, and celebrate successes?

Applicants will have the ability and firm commitment to delivering outdoor/indoor sports, arts and craft and organise activities and events. If you are interested we are looking for you to join our team – a perfect role for someone with passion and who wants to work alongside young people and share ideas that inspire.

The posts involve working evenings and alongside young people on their patch. The role is varied and involves a very practical, hands-on approach and you must be flexible, adaptable with the ability to deliver activity sessions to young people. This exciting role is for someone looking to build a career in youth work or simply to serve the interests of young people. Being, energetic, enthusiastic, a good communicator all helps together with a sense of humour and ability to engage young people. If this sounds like an opportunity that may be of interest we will be pleased to hear from you.
