Delta aims to complements current provision for young people in Ilfracombe and be a space where young people can feel secure and valued and establish supportive relationships with the team and other young people.
Delta is a space where young people can:
* Increase their sense of being part of the Ilfracombe community.
* Explore who they have been created to be.
*Have conversations about what is significant in their lives and what will be significant in their future.
We see our young people have so many fantastic qualities; they are creative, passionate, resilient, and so much more and we want to continue to invest in them and support them in reaching their full potential.
Delta is an open space every weekday (term time) for a 2 hour drop-in session with activities available, homework support and generally a comfortable space for young people to hang out with their friends and the team.
71 High Street, EX34 9NG.
Delta has been generously gifted the use of a space on the corner of Marlborough Road and Church Street (the old Marlborough Club).
