Laff Caff Youth Café

Our Youth Café is a safe, dedicated, quality, drug and alcohol free meeting space for young people ranging in age from 14 to 19 yrs.

Young people are involved in the planning, researching, decision-making, fundraising and running of the café. This empowerment of young people gives them responsibility and creates a sense of ownership and commitment to the space. These are the aspects that make a youth café so unique.
