Youth & Children

Ykids works with children & young people our goal is to be a presence throughout young lives, in a variety of settings with young people able to access a range of support, activities and experiences. 

“Ykids has always been like a second home to me.”


What We Do:

Below is some of the children & youth work we currently do.  To find out more or to register your child, head over to Join In, Sign-Up!


During term-time, we run after school clubs for both children and youth aged 4-18. These groups range from sports, music lessons, arts, photography, make-up, homework support, computers and lots more. Join a group here!

Ykids Online

When the Covid-19 Pandemic hit, all our work went online. We created an activity website called 'Ykids Online' for children to access online events, games, blogs, activities, crafts, experiments and challenges. Take a look!


We recognise that some children benefit from 1:2:1 support. We do this be designing sessions that fit in with the needs of the child/young person. We have worked with young people experiencing worry and anxiety, low moods, struggling to find employment, navigating difficult family dynamics, behaviour management as well as gang involvement. 

Youth Events

During the school holidays we love to take our members on trips and have themed fun-days and experiences. Making happy memories with friends is so important for growth and wellbeing.

Arts Award

We currently run groups that give children and youth the opportunity to win an Arts Award, which they will be able to display on their CV. Find out more about the Arts Award

We hold large events for the community throughout the year, partnering with local businesses and organisations to bring FREE fun to Bootle. Go to our Events page!
