Your views on Escape Youth Cafe

Gillian Patterson

The cafe keeps young occupied and gets them into the habit of doing something positive rather than just hanging about, with the possibilities of them getting in college - that is one of the best things about it.

Jim Hay

I think that they do a lot of activities there - listen to music, play games and generally have a good time.

It’s very good for the community because it gives young kids something to do, it keeps them occupied, it educates them, let’s them mix with other kids the same age, all in a safe environment.

Jamie Buchanan

It is better for the youngsters that they are in a place with each other and that they are supervised taking part in

different activities.
