We're in the process of updating our Covid-19 policies in line with new Government guidance, so the information on this page may no longer apply. We aim to have new policies ready by Monday 11 January.

Most of our events are available online. This includes weekly livestreamed activities like Connect, Inspire, and Reach, as well as pre-recorded content for children and families like Lite Nite. We're also creating 'lockdown challenges' to help young people find hope and encouragement in these challenging times.
We can currently offer livestreamed sessions for local primary and secondary schools. This includes Emotional Wellbeing and custom RE Lessons. To book a session for your school, please contact us.
We can currently run emotional wellbeing sessions for vulnerable young people at our youth centre and at local secondary schools. This includes professional counselling and support groups.

Can you help us?
Vision runs on the generosity of local people. We're doing everything we can to keep in touch with as many young people as possible, but our resources are limited. We're currently looking for 100 people who can give £5/month to support our work. To set up a Direct Debit, or help us with a one-off donation, please click here to Donate.
