The YC Hertfordshire Breaks Manor Youth Centre is situated in the centre of Hatfield and within 10 minutes walking distance of the train station; it serves both Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield.

The project is staffed by friendly, approachable, trained youth workers who put young people's interest at the centre of their work. The building is accessible for those with disabilities on level 1.

There is a 'chill out' lounge for you to relax in, a computer suite with internet access, a music and recording studio, art and craft room, and on some evenings, a motorbike project within the centre. In addition to these facilities, you have the opportunity to take part in a variety of activities such as basic cooking, drama, DJ mixing etc and to develop life and social skills.

You will be given the opportunity to voice your opinions and get information on issues that are important to you, such as alcohol, drugs, health, education, bullying and peer pressure to name but a few.
