Zac’s is an independent Christian Charity, which aims to offer care and support to young people and provide a meeting place free from alcohol and other harmful influences.
A huge programme of activities for young people aged 11 -18 (up to 25 for those with special needs). Choose from sports, after school clubs, one to one support and much much more.
First and foremost our programme of activities is designed and planned to be fun and enjoyable. Over and above this however, we work to ensure that we also support the personal development of the young people who take part.

We do all we can to generate our own funds and to work as cost effectively as possible but with increasing demand and decreasing support any contribution you can give will both, help us make a difference and gratefully received.
Why not consider being part of the answer! If you are local could you volunteer, even an hour per month. We don’t just need people to work with the young people but also those who can help with practical tasks, driving, cooking etc.
