Our building in Norwich is where we have our Norwich Drop-In Centre. This is where we are based for all our advice, counselling and youth work. You can find us here.
Advice in Norwich
The Norwich Drop-In Centre is open Monday to Friday from 1.30 to 5.30 pm and is where young people can come for advice without having to make an appointment. For more information about the advice work we offer take a look at our services.
Free phones, fax and internet access are available for you to use to sort things out. Tea and coffee is also free. The Drop-In Centre is warm, comfortable and friendly.
On Mondays between 4.00pm and 5.30pm the Drop-In sessions are tailored especially for under 19 year olds (but you can still get advice if you’re 20-25). Our youth workers are easy to get on with and full of ideas. They can give you opportunities to learn new things, and meet new people. They work with groups of young people to help them get more involved with their community, and access positive activities. Sessions have included cinema nights, healthy eating cafe, goal setting, and film projects.
Find out more about these by contacting Will for more information.
Getting involved with your community
MAP also runs projects to help young people get involved in your communities. The Youth Advisory Board (YAB) and Youth Action Groups provide opportunities for young people in the area to work together to make a difference to their communities. Find out more about the YAB on their Facebook page. If you’d like to get involved in the YAB or YAG’s, contact our youth worker Paul for more information.
Getting involved in Positive Activities
We offer a variety of positive activities for young people who are facing difficulties in their lives and who may need additional support. We offer a wide range of activities which include day trips, residential weekends, workshops, and courses to gain qualifications, based on what young people tell us they want. They are a chance to
- try new things,
- meet new people,
- learn new skills,
- and discover skills you never knew you had.
We know that sometimes young people can find it difficult to get involved in positive activities if they
- are a carer for a member of their family;
- are looked after by someone who isn’t family;
- are having a tough time at school, have been excluded, or have special educational needs;
- have a disability, or mental health issues;
- have lots of difficult things going on in their family or at home;
- have, or are at risk of having, a criminal record;
- haven’t got a job, or aren’t in education or training.
Activities in the past have included outdoor skills trips to activity centres, capoeira and street dancing, sightseeing and wildlife walks, arts and crafts activities, sailing and canoeing, roller skating and indoor sports, trips to the Norfolk Show and to other events.
