Our dedicated youth work team have over a quarter of a century of experience supporting young people to become the best they can be, developing young people’s confidence, their resilience and their relationship skills. Our experience not only shows that good youth work makes a difference to this, but suggests that the higher quality the experience, the greater the impact on social and emotional skills – whether the young person is having fun, the relationship they have with their youth worker and how much they are learning, all matter. This ethos reinforces Himmat’s emphasis on quality youth provision.
Himmat has a long and proud history of supporting and challenging young people to become the best they can be; ensuring they grow up healthy, able to find a fulfilling career and make a positive contribution in their communities with our Youth Centre based in the heart of the diverse community of Park Ward in Halifax
Himmat runs Youth Centre 2 days a week. It takes place on Thursday evenings from 5pm until 8pm and Saturdays from 4pm until 7pm. As well as various thematic projects, guest speakers and activities Himmat offers local young people a safe, nurturing environment to spend time with each other, the qualified youth workers and volunteers. Furthermore every session gives young people the opportunity to access our sports facilities, games such as table tennis, pool, table football, gaming and board games. We have various youth outings throughout the year and each summer offer the chance to go on one of our challenging outdoor bounds residential trips.
