Who are we?
SPACE is designed specifically for young people who have experienced one adult hurting another adult in their home (often called domestic abuse). It focuses on:
Ensuring young people know they are not the only one to have experienced hurting at home.
Giving time for young people to be themselves, to have fun and to try out new things.
Providing opportunities for young people to work through their experiences if they want to.
To be referred to the service the young people must be aged 9-16 and living or going to school in Bedford Borough.
What do we do?
SPACE runs mini youth clubs known as 'planets' that take place over a fortnight at various locations in Kempston. There are up to 10 young people and two or three staff members in each group. Every planet is given a budget each term which can be spent on workshops, meals or equipment. The young people also have access to sports facilities, a music room and a creative space.
