We provide positive activities for young people who may have limited opportunities in life. We give young people a safe, supportive environment where our staff will give them opportunities to learn, socialise and be a positive part of their community.

We’re proud to be part of Youth West – a partnership of seven organisations, led by YMCA Norfolk, working together to establish a network of youth clubs across West Norfolk to provide a range of activities for young people aged 11 to 18.

These open access youth clubs also aim to build up a centralised training programme for people wishing to get involved in youth work as a paid employee or a volunteer.

As well as YMCA Norfolk, we are working with the following partners:

• SWAN Youth Centre
• The Garage
• West Norfolk MIND
• St Edmunds
• National Youth Theatre

We offer a free youth club for young people in two areas of West Norfolk:

Upcoming activities at Docking include:

  • Friday 26th April – Craft activity and jewellery making
