Connect Alloa is open to all young people between the ages of 11 and 19 (the older age is based on individual assessments which involve the young person, staff and trustee team).
We ask all young people to fill out a registration form before attending, which you can find here.
Our usual session days/times are:
Tuesdays, 6:30pm to 8:30pm
Fridays, 6:30pm to 8:30pm
Saturdays, 11am to 1pm
These can sometimes change, so it’s a good idea to follow us on social media for updates!
We’ve put together a short guide on accessing and using our online Discord server. At the moment, our Tuesday evening sessions are hosted online. Read the guide here.
At the moment, all of our sessions are taking place online.
We have still been able to offer a range of different activities, including: playing online games together (Among Us, Jackbox Games), Dungeons and Dragons nights, as well as creative activities like drawing and painting. We’ve been using Discord to host these sessions.
During our in-person groups, we play games on our Nintendo Switch (including Smash Brothers, Overcooked and Mario Kart) and we have a range of board games, a pool table and table tennis. Some of our young people enjoy doing creative activities and social enterprise sessions. We also play Dungeons and Dragons.
Yes, of course! We love meeting new people! As long as they meet the necessary criteria mentioned above and fill out a registration form.
Some fundraising activities we’ve tried before include: bag-packing at a local supermarket, a sponsored ‘Lock-In’ event, raffles and tombolas.
We are always looking for new and creative ideas, so please get in touch if you have any suggestions!
