Every day is different!
RUSH 2The DEN believes in 'Inspiring young people to achieve'. We exist to support young people’s development, offering opportunities to gain, increase and develop skills, knowledge self awareness and confidence, and enabling them to make positive and healthy life choices through our wide range of programs for children from birth to young adults of 17 years with an extensive programme of baby & tots sessions during the school day and evening Youth Clubs through the week for different age groups.
Following the recent government advice issued last night regarding COVID-19 we have taken the very hard decision to temporarily suspend all RUSH 2The DEN Tots & Adults and Youth Club activities. We have been running along the stance of advice to schools and are aware that they are not closed, however as a Youth Club and independent Youth Centre we feel responsible safeguarding of our families health is paramount. We will be reviewing this decision and acting on government advice and will keep you all informed of our reopening through Facebook posts, emails and website
Hope that you all stay safe and well, see you all very soon RUSH 2The DEN
