The ARC supports young people aged 9 – 19 from the Alexandra and Ainsworth Estate and surrounding areas by helping them to achieve their potential as confident, capable young adults through a structured programme of activities ranging from football, music technology, dance, art and much more!


In addition to sporting, educational and creative activities, the ARC is a safe place to meet friends, develop activities and projects with their peers, build relationships with adults as well as get help and advice.

We can help young people with advice about apprenticeships, further education and employment prospects through signposting and helping with CVs. This youth centre also houses a full recording studio. To find out more about the ARC, explore this website, or better still, come and see us!
