Projects And Activities

Being a young person can be challenging because of all the responsibilities placed upon them by their family, peers and society in general.

The evolution of digital technology and the immense increase in population, has resulted in young people facing more complex problems and issues that young people of the past would never have experienced.

We know that young people today experience higher levels of stress and anxiety, often exasperated by social media, exploitation, peer pressure, lived experience, navigating their identity and the pressures placed upon them to achieve.

Our offer of support at Tokko Youth Space includes open access drop-in sessions, targeted support and 1-1 counselling.

Our enhanced life skills programme encourages opportunities to training, education and employment; through a quality assured certification.

All activities are delivered and led by fully qualified, trusted adults with valuable experience of working responsively to meet the needs of Luton’s diverse children and young people.

Referrals

TOKKO accepts self-referrals from young people as well as referrals from parents and professionals such as GP’s, schools, health services, youth workers and social workers.

When completing your referral form please select the identified project and include as much detail as possible, to enable us to fully assess the current situation and support needs.

Once we receive your referral we will contact you to explore the young person’s needs in more detail and invite them into Tokko Youth Space.

Should you wish to discuss making a referral, don’t be afraid to pick up the phone and talk to one of our friendly youth work team – remember there is no such thing as a silly question.

All we ask is that you make sure the young person you refer to us is fully aware of, and has consented to the referral.
