Working with Young People
The Centre offers a significant level of support to work with young people, helped by financial contributions from the Provost Tulloch Fund. There is also a Special Needs Club that runs on a Thursday evening and the current age range is from 13 - 19 years.
In addition, Cosmos Centre also provides a base for Detached Youth Workers - these workers support a range of initiatives for young people including summer programmes, skate park developments and links with Madras College. Cosmos Centre also offers support and resources to the Youth Cafe that meets twice a week at the Victory Memorial Hall.
Fife Council provides Youth Workers to support all these youth projects and therefore they are operated under Fife Council Policy and Guidelines.
