Youth Support at The Cavern

The Cavern
When The Cavern opened in January 2015, it was built with young people in mind. In fact, it was a small group of young people we knew at the time who had the vision to transform the place. There were four people at the helm of making the launch possible; Robin, Tami, Andy, and Mike all have a big passion for working with young people and if you were to ever pop down on a Friday night, you would’ve seen them there, serving faithfully as volunteers every week!
Fast forward three years and the amount of young people we saw at The Cavern each week had increased by so many that having a Friday youth night had become less effective. In March 2018 we made the decision to disband our dedicated team on a Friday so that they could instead offer youth support throughout the week. This enables us to provide support to more young people at varied times.
Youth Support is a free evening drop in session for those aged 13-17 with their own discreet access for U18s only. We also offer support for 18-19 inn our coffee shop space The Cavern. It is a safe space for youth to play games, meet new friends and hang out. With milkshakes and snacks if you are hungry! We have a great team of staff on 365 days a year to lend a listening ear to anyone that needs one, offering support and mentoring. No referrals needed, so you can just walk in!
You can find us in the basement of the Cavern, accessible from College Street. If you are unsure of how to get to us, one of the friendly staff in the Cavern will be more than happy to show you the way. The basement is a ‘youth only’ space, but if you want to come and check out the space with a parent or carer, you can pop into the cavern and we can arrange it for you in the daytime.


Youth Support at The Cavern happens every night between 5pm and 10pm. We currently are looking for more volunteers to meet the need. Apply below!
