Hideaway Youth Project has been providing innovative youth work since 1965 in the Moss Side area of Manchester. We are continually addressing the balance between “universal” and “targeted” work.
Hideaway is a project aimed at young people aged 11-25 of all cultures, religion and race, responding to the issues that are affecting them .
We aim to give the young people a voice so that they respond in a way that they feel they are being heard. We want the young people to have ownership of their community youth project and have activities that reflect their needs.
We provide young people with the opportunity to become volunteers so that they can work alongside us and develop their own resources .
Hideaway has a strong commitment to growing capacity in the local community and with young people’s support we offer workshops on issues such as drugs, sexual health/exploitation , staying safe plus many more .
We offer universal services so that young people can start to build a trusting relationship with us. Universal services include sport, multi-media, art and cooking activities.
Hideaway aims to support all young people in Moss Side and the surrounding areas, regardless of their background. We aim to encourage them to explore and express their views and opinions to enable them to make a positive contribution to society to and their own lives.
We work in partnership with other agencies and organizations so that the young person has the best service possible and all their needs can be catered for.
At Hideaway we treasure our volunteers for their dedication, dependability and the wide variety of services they perform for the youth project. At Hideaway people volunteer for a wide variety of reasons, it could be to:
- to share a skill
