What we'll do

Close House is a social space for teenagers. We are excited to be participating in the HAF programme. It feels like visiting family – it’s comfy and clean, there’s always food and there’s always someone who’s pleased to see you. Plus there’s a pool table, wifi and decent music. And food. Always food. Workshops and activities are run by specially selected and experienced Youth Workers and volunteers. You can talk to them about anything and they’ll always try and help, or put you in touch with someone who can.

Close House Projects·Become mature, be helpful and hungry for life
Close House is a Youth Centre in Hereford, in the West Midlands, UK. We help young people aged 11-24 to become mature, be helpful and grow hungry for a full life. All of our projects aim to be Safe, Supportive and Inspiring. Safe: Young people should be free to enjoy their youth; free from risk-taking behaviour, free from abuse. At Close House drop-in centre we have pool tables, games consoles, arts and crafts, musical instruments, outdoor games and internet access. And everything’s free. Supportive: Projects are staffed by qualified and experienced youth workers who provide informal support on anything from school and family to drugs, relationships and healthy living. Inspiring: The staff team and partners put on workshops, activities and showcases that include a variety of exciting themes, including media, music, arts, cookery, games tournaments, home skills, volunteering and community action. We aim to break the cycle of negative experience and behaviour that some young people face, helping them find hope and aspiration and enabling them to control the direction their own lives take. The vast majority of the young people using Close House are vulnerable, disadvantaged or socially excluded. We work with a large number who experience homelessness, mental health issues, substance misuse, have minor criminal records, are not in education, training or employment or who have suffered abusive childhoods. With good support, positive activities and opportunities to get creative and expressive, these young people can change their story to one of hope and optimism.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.

Free bookings do not require refunds but as places are limited, please cancel if you cannot attend so that your place can be offered to someone else.
