The Social Activities programme provides fun, social and safe activities which are designed to give our young people the chance to enjoy an active social life, make new friends, and become part of their community.
There is a range of activities offered monthly and new members are always welcome to join. Activities include youth clubs, bowling nights, discos, local theatre shows, and meals out, as well as more seasonal trips like theme park outings, outdoor sports, and even llama treks! We also watch local sports matches (e.g. ice hockey, football, basketball). The list of opportunities for socialising is endless!
The dedicated Social Activities team are all fully trained, DBS checked and supported by 1:1 halow Buddies or volunteers where necessary so the young people can relax and enjoy themselves.
16 – 19-year olds – We run a popular Friday Night Youth Club, which takes place fortnightly. The activities are aimed at new members and we offer taster sessions for our other activities.
20+ year olds – Our 20+ Group enjoy regular evening activities to explore Guildford and enjoy live entertainment. The group enjoy club nights, live music, comedy, and general entertainment.
For Everyone – We hold a large and popular disco 4 times a year usually in February, May, August, and November. Our bowling nights are held twice a month. We also have a music group which runs every Tuesday.
Youth Committee – halow staff and young people meet once a month in the pub in Guildford to work together to come up with new ideas and help plan future social activities. It is an opportunity for the young people to discuss what activities they most enjoy and feedback to halow in a relaxed and informal environment. The sessions also act as a chance for young people to meet new people, catch up with one another and, of course, enjoy a drink.
