RPT helps local young people to build their community by providing facilities, skills, activities and guidance that promote a stable society in a deprived area.
Young people are not just our future, they are our present. For society to function properly, they have to function properly. RPT is here to guide them on the journey through childhood, adolescence and young adulthood. Through a range of activities RPT gives stability and encouragement in lives that are often blighted by deprivation and crime. RPT is open to all local children and young people for fun, learning, participation, community and self-improvement from the ages of 5 to 25. Our centre in Walmer Road is busy all day and at weekends. We work with 1,150 young people on and off site.
All our staff and volunteers are passionate, committed and professional about what we do.
