Witton Project is based in a large terraced house close to Witton Park. It is situated in easy walking distance to the town centre and also has easy access to public transport.

Each young person is assigned a Support Worker who will look at their needs & aspirations then co-produce a bespoke action plan to help them achieve their goals.

Young people are encouraged to participate in the running of the project through residents meetings, carrying out Health & Safety checks and risk assessments etc. as well as taking part in activities such as cook and eat sessions.
