Aims & objectives

To provide support and assistance for young people in the East End of Glasgow and environs and, in particular (but without prejudice to that generality), to provide and develop and operate a youth facility with the object of improving the conditions of the young people at whom the service is aimed. Fuse Youth Café Glasgow is a charity working in East Glasgow providing a variety of services to young people of the area. The area has a high level of deprivation and the young people face the risks and challenges associated with areas of high deprivation. Fuse offers a safe place for young people with a café area, gig space and internet café. The internet cafe is supported by Glasgow Kelvin College. Activities, including formal and informal learning, are offered as supported and developed by young people. Fuse is open six days a week. Afternoon sessions for young people in P5-P7 are offered five days a week for three hours. This includes an hour of formal learning, including homework support. Evening sessions for young people aged 12-18 are offered six days a week, Monday-Saturday, for three hours. In addition, a session is offered during the day for young people aged 16-25 seeking support in further education, training, employability skills, and job seeking. Fuse is more than providing an alcohol & drug free venue for local young people to gather. The activities and resources we make available are always evolving to meet the needs and requests of young people. The building of positive relationships between Fuse members and youth workers is pivotal to successfully developing the confidence, social and employability skills of these young people.
