The YPC Café

The YPC can help young people with one of life’s most important and fun skills – cooking. As well as cooking healthy and tasty food for the other young people in the drop-in, young people can eat socially. Young people can get a hot, tasty and filling meal for 30p.

“ I am one of the people who go to the YPC and it is one of the best places, loads of people go there and it is not bad. ”

– Jason

“ I have visited the Young Peoples Centre many times over the last few years and each time am impressed with the warm atmosphere and positive work that is being done with often limited resources. The cafe is a huge asset to the centre and to young people in the area, and makes the YPC an even more brilliant place to be. ”
