HeadStart Autumn Activites


FREE Autumn activities for 10 to 16 year olds

Settle back into school with our free Autumn term activities


After the success of this year’s Summer Programme, we are once again working with Gazebo Theatre, WV10 Consortium and YMCA Black Country to offer free, fun activities for 10 to 16 year olds, and their parents or carers.

All our Autumn-term activities are designed to support young people and encourage positive emotional wellbeing and mental health. They help young people develop new skills, boost self-confidence, make new friends and more!We fund a range of activities and interventions for 10 to 16 year olds, their parents and families in Wolverhampton, as part of our mission to support the emotional wellbeing and mental health of young people in the city.
