Activities – join in!

Gillingham Youth Collective is running a variety of activities, chosen by the young people who are part of the collective. We will have new activities starting up across the five-year period from 2022 to 2027.

All our activities are FREE for young people from Gillingham, Dorset, aged 11 to 18.

Have a look through the listings below and find something you would like to do. Then get in touch if you would like to join in – use the contact form on the page for your chosen activity.

Remember, there are new activities starting up every few months, so come back and see if there is anything new you would like to get involved in.
