The Abergavenny area of the project covers the main town, suburbs and surrounding villages, stretching to Raglan, Little Mill, Gilwern and Grosmont.


Regular activities in the Abergavenny area include



We are always looking to develop opportunities based on what the young people want and encourage and support them to set up their own social groups, such as Cinema Club.

During school holidays and on some weekends other events and activities are arranged depending on the young people’s desires and availability. These vary and in the past have included Cookery, Drama, Internet Gaming sessions, various sporting events, and Craft etc. Advanced notice will be given closer to the times.

Many of the Abergavenny Young People who aren’t in school or college are involved in volunteering within the Abergavenny and Monmouth areas, working in the Bridges Community Shop, helping at various social groups or community venues such as The Abergavenny Community Centre, The Melville Theatre and with our very own swimming group. Support is given via job coaching if necessary and we work with the young people to explore different work based opportunities.

If you would like to attend any of the above activities or would like more information, please contact Andy on 07788 606268
