Teen Takeover at The Arc

The Teen Takeover weekend is a new initiative led by the Local Youth Network (the LYN) as part of the Chippenham Area Board.

The weekend of 27-28 April is dedicated to young people from the Chippenham area aged 13-19 and up to 24 for those with SEND needs and is to showcase the current youth provision that is available for young people in the Chippenham area.
