We work with young people ages 12-21 who hang out in the city centre (around 150 different young people over the course of a fortnight). We don’t ‘put stuff on’ for the young people, instead we support them to develop their own opportunities – that way there’s a shed load more skills and confidence developed.
Most importantly, Hot Chocolate is a place where the young people feel ‘at home’.
