About the Organisation

Fairhill Youth Centre is situated in Maghera. It caters for children and young people by providing a range of youth orientated activities in a range of evenings throughout the week. There are planned programmes of activities aimed at ensuring that young people have the opportunity to meet and enjoy their leisure time in a safe supervised environment. Young people also participate in activities designed to develop their physical fitness, their mental resilience and their emotional capacities. Normal youth activities such as football, basketball, netball are combined with discos, dance, health and beauty and these are accompanied by regular workshops on issues such as substance abuse and misuse, safety awareness, cyber bullying and respect for themselves and others and their communities.
