We believe there is no greater cost to society than unfulfilled potential. We put children and young people at the heart of our charity and that’s why all our activities are developed with their ideas.
Our ethos is based on our universal open access offer, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year, reaching over 1,000 individual children and young people each year (ages 9 – 17), through centre based play and youth work, sports provision, arts and music programmes, dance, multi-media, holiday activities and outreach in the local neighbourhood, and projects which empower, inspire and build confidence and resilience.
Working in collaboration with partner organisations and schools, we have a proven track record in supporting some of the most vulnerable and complex young people.

Before CATCH, I did not think about my future, but now I want to aim high.

I struggled with self-confidence and now I’m in a much better place.
