CATCH was granted permission to setup a temporary base in a cabin based on the Hovingham Primary School site. CATCH organised a youth club running four evenings per week which attracted over hundreds of local young people in a matter of weeks of opening. ‘The Hub’ was officially launched in June 2013 by the Police & Crime Commissioner Mark Burns-Williamson. Later that same year CATCH moved into a larger modular building on the school site and developed this into a much-needed community and youth provision working with a range of partner organisations. It was furnished by young people themselves who helped with the running of youth activities.
CATCH also became a registered charity and formally acquired the land (mentioned above) from Leeds City Council.
