Young Company: The Team (Byker)

If you’re a young person living in Byker (aged 14-21), The Team is a chance to come to a local session each Wednesday night and try new things.

Each week, The Team cooks and eats together before taking part in a new or different creative experience. This is often followed by a chat and lots of laughter and we’re always looking to welcome new people.

The group is supported by Northern Stage creative staff and sessions also involve special guests who support the young people to explore their interests and passions and develop new skills.

Whether these skills are creative or practical – the knowledge and confidence developed is useful in the outside world.

At the end of each year of The Team the group will create two community events for their own neighbourhood. They decide what these events are, who they’re for and what job they’d like to take on when organising them.

The Team has been made possible due to generous support from the Newcastle City Council ‘Newcastle Youth Fund’ working in partnership with The National Lottery Community Fund. The Youth Fund supports activities that engage and inspire young people, support their emotional health and physical wellbeing and build community resilience. Supported activities aim to promote social and emotional well-being and inclusivity.
