 Senior Youth Work Practitioner


Hi, I’m Julie Chapman, I am the Senior Youth Work Practitioner for Dover district and based at Linwood Youth Centre. 


We are currently running the following courses;

Anger Management Course

Life Skills (Magic Course)

Unemployed members activities


If you are interested in any of these or have suggestions of other programmes that would be useful to the community and young people please do not hesitate to contact me.


We are always on the look out for people to volunteer with the centre and if you have any skills please contact me to discuss



 Castle Community Project


Castle Community Project is based out of Castle Community College on Mill Road in Deal, with regular interaction with linwood Youth Centre. Through the project we have organized regular theatre trips, paintball, bowling, and run after school programmes on demand, these have included Robotics and street dance. I support the school on trips. This has included Thorpe Park, London Portrait  Gallery & War Museum and ‘We Will Rock You’ show this year so far.

I support the school with school council meetings.


With a group of students threw up suggestions for activities which either led directly into offering cheerleading, dance and drama after school activities. I have maintained a very good working relationship with this group and we regularly discuss what they think I should be doing & how I should be doing it!


We are continually seeking young peoples input into the programme both informally and through the school council meetings. Examples of this include requests for football games and a babysitting course, both of which I have sorted out.


If you come to CCC look me up, see if we can come up with more ideas and activities to enjoy.

 East Kent Coalfields Project


The East Kent Coalfields Detached Youth Project operates in the villages of Dover District Council such as Ringwould, Eythorne, Eastry, Aycliffe.  Using a converted LDV it offers youth activities for young people in the playing fields and places where young people are found catering for young people aged 13-18 and is the only youth provision in many communities.


Indeed some of your present and past staff and their siblings have been amongst our members.


Particularly in summer, tennis, short tennis features highly amongst our activities and we could indeed appreciate and use some tennis balls as they frequently get lost in the bushes / undergrowth surrounding playing fields.


For further details contact Jerry Smith (07740 186070)

UK Youth exists to develop and promote innovative non-formal education programmes for and with young people - working with them to develop their potential.

Our network supports more than 750,000 young people, 7000 youth groups, clubs and projects and more than 40,000 volunteer and part-time youth workers throughout the UK.

Our work with young people can and does make a lasting impact by encouraging young people to take responsibility and become involved citizens. It gives a voice to people who are too rarely heard and builds skills that will remain useful throughout their lives.


 What is Connexions?

Connexions Kent & Medway is a service providing free impartial and confidential advice, guidance, support and personal development services to all 13-19 year olds, and to those up to 25 who have learning difficulties and disabilities.

The Connexions Kent & Medway service is delivered by specially trained Personal Advisers (P.A.s) who are based in schools, colleges, at Connexions Access Points, and in a range of community settings.

It's not just about careers and learning. Our Personal Advisers can help you with all sorts of issues such as jobs, training, housing, money, relationships and health.

We can also help you develop your talents and interests, for example through volunteering, community projects, the arts, sport or other local leisure activities.

The success of Connexions Kent & Medway depends on the involvement of young people. Through our Youth Board we listen to their views about the delivery of our service, and have a Youth Charter which outlines young people’s priorities.

We also work closely with a number of partners such as schools and colleges, employers, and the public, private, voluntary and community sectors, and encourage parents and carers to get involved in the service.
