The Take Over Café is run by a group of young volunteers and aims to provide a safe, creative space for young people to relax, meet new friends, get creative and enjoy wholesome food.
The Take Over Café offers a safe and supportive environment for those aged 12 to 17 to discuss ideas about mental health, reduce stigma and improve wellbeing. We aim to support those who are struggling at home or in school, those who may experience bullying or social isolation and provide an inclusive, non-judgemental space where everyone is valued.
The evenings comprise of different craft activities such as jewellery making, batik, painting and more unusual things like making pet rocks. We’ll have plenty of quizzes, team games and activities. If that doesn’t sound like your thing, you’re welcome to come along just to chill out, listen to music, play games or even watch a film. An evening meal is also provided, where everyone sits down together and has chance to relax and chat.
