The group currently meet weekly at Stonehaven Community Centre to debate and address local issues affecting young people. Once a month, they meet with young people in Portlethen and Mearns to discuss wider youth issues. The group are currently working on a film project challenging bullying and stereotyping. New members welcome. Conact Stonehaven Community Centre on 01569 762688 for more information or contact the group directly via their Facebook page

Information for Parents

Anyone attending will receive a Youth Group Registration Form on their first visit to any group run by Community Learning & Development which should be completed & signed by their parent/guardian and returned to staff.

Costs of attending are £1.30 which is payable on each visit to the group. Special trips and activities may be organised with Consent Forms and information available to parents and guardians in advance. Short trips (i.e. within walking distance) during sessions may be organised with no prior notice.

All the youth groups write up their own set of ground rules and the consequences of breaking these rules with the support of the youth work staff. We would ask that all young people attending groups would respect each other, the staff & and other people using the facilities. We believe that all young people who attend sessions should feel safe, happy and able to participate as a valued member of the group they are part of.

In community learning we try to offer opportunities for young people to be involved in a addressing issues which are relevant to young people in society today. These issues could include bullying, peer pressure, drugs, alcohol, sexual health, careers, leisure, culture, racism. If you would like to discuss the content attached to any of these things please contact staff at the Community Centre in Stonehaven.

In the event of membership being removed for any reason or a young person being involved in a serious incident during a session, parents will be informed.

All of our staff undergo Youth Work training and are given regular opportunities to build on these skills. All staff and volunteers are PVG checked.
