Working for and with the young people of Ashford


About Us

At Sk8side Youth Centre we are a free service for young people and provide them with an empowering and nurturing environment where they can develop as individuals and gain all the skills they need as they go into young adulthood.

Our goals are to shape the way they live their lives and teach them the fundamentals of social responsibility, healthy living and cultural acceptance. Curious to find out more about us and how you can get involved? Browse our website and get in touch with us today.
