Supporting young people

Let’s make sure children and young people across Torus communities have access to safe, fun and healthy environments.

FireFit Youth and Community Hub

Part of Torus Foundation, FireFit provides a range of activities that inspires children and young people, and works with the broader community to work towards reaching their full potential. Based in the South Liverpool community, FireFit is a place where young people feel safe and secure, where they have a sense of belonging, feel trusted, respected and listened to – not judged.

With meeting spaces and sports facilities also available to hire, find out more.

Sure Start Children’s Centres

Children’s Centres bring together a range of free services for the under-fives and their families. Services vary at each centre depending on the needs of the local community, but all centres provide child and family health, family-support services and various parent and toddler activities.

Most centres also provide childcare or will signpost families to local childcare providers.

Find your local centre via Liverpool City Council, St Helens Borough Council or Warrington Borough Council.

Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

Through Torus Foundation’s FireFit Youth and Community Hub, young members can work towards the Bronze Award as part of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE).

It’s great opportunity for young people to discover new interests and talents, while developing essential skills for life and work, and earning a recognised mark of achievement that’s respected by employers and if they’re thinking about further education.

It involves helping the community/environment, becoming fitter, developing new skills, planning, training for and completing an expedition. A chance to make friends, have fun, while building skills and confidence.

If you’re a FireFit Youth and Community Hub Youth Member (or parent/legal guardian) interested in achieving the Bronze Award, contact the team of how to get involved. Quote ‘DofE’ and email
