Unique Youth at the George Shearing Centre
Unique Youth, a specialist after school club, runs at the George Shearing Centre. Referrals can come from schools, parents, social workers, friends of the club or other specialist groups. Once you have spoken with a member of the team you will be invited down to view the club and for your child to have a trial session to see if they enjoy their time with us.
