Wednesdays 330-5pm, Tesco Cafe Linwood, 11 Bridge St, Linwood, Paisley PA3 3DB

A fun and relaxed place for young people 12-18 to share their ideas and get creative! Weekly drop in to meet new friends, for a range of workshops and activities, games and hang outs, and the opportunity to have your voice heard and help develop what you’d like to see in Linwood for young people.

Past work

Our activities and achievements so far have included the establishing of our work in Linwood with the SPACE group in 2019. The young people worked with filmmakers, graphic designers, graphic novelists and architects to practice telling their story and to plan what an ideal youth space could look like. A short film was created to tell their story, share the needs the space would meet, and express their manifesto. This was swiftly followed by the development of the SPACE branding and the incredible comic, telling the Linwood set sci-fi story, ‘Aliens from Inner Space’. 

When the 2020/21 pandemic and resulting lockdown hit we continued to meet online with weekly workshops – getting together for creative activity, and fun games and quizzes! Our young people also led sessions based around the national MIND health campaign, 5 Ways to Wellbeing, providing vital peer supportive discussion through this difficult time.
