Fuse Youth Café
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 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 café is supported by John Wheatley College.
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 free venue for local young people to gather. The activities and resources that they 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.
The national focus for young people in Scotland is on developing services to enable young people to become confident individuals, successful learners, effective contributors and responsible citizens. These four capacities are fully supported by Fuse’s mission and strategic objectives with our focus on early intervention and underpin our approach to youth work.
Social Enterprise is our way to give the young people of the community aged 12-18 who want to gain more knowledge and skills in the running and development of a business a chance to do so. All the proceeds go back into Fuse to benefit the young people in the community.
The project was funded by O2 Think Big and began in November 2010. Any profits made go back into the continued development and provision of the project
