Young people have access to our music recording facilities and rehearsal band room operated by our dedicated music engineer. PowerStation is currently developing its music offer to also have a live recording space and is supporting young people in specialised music events such as band nights and working towards performing at the AfC Youth Awards and other events. 

Young people have access to our gym and sports hall. They can come and use the fully equipped gym and a personal trainer for young people to incorporate exercise into their daily routine and set goals for themselves.

We have an art studio which young people have full access to and the resources and equipment in order to make art work to take home. 

We also have specialist mentoring staff to discuss and support across areas of risk such as mental health, sexual health, substance misuse and many others. Support of this nature is provided on request and we always treat issues of this type with the care and sensitivity they deserve.

Learn To Cook (currently running but with reduced numbers)

Gives young people the skills and knowledge needed to make healthy food choices for themselves; it empowers young people so that they can look forward to a healthier future.

Practical cookery has health, social and educational benefits:

  • Health: young people learn about basic nutrition, how to prepare healthy and tasty dishes from fresh ingredients and to cook in a safe and hygienic way.
  • Social: young people become more independent, work together and learn about other cultures through food. Young people can share skills with family and friends.
  • Educational: young people learn a practical life skill. Some young people can achieve an accredited qualification in cookery.
