ALS Services


We're delighted to continue to grow & regrow our services with our 'Youth Zone' &/or 'Fun Time' sessions (during term-time), in; Chard, Crekwerne & Tatworth. We plan to announce more new & exciting developments & services for 2023, soon!


Centre-based services take place in; Chard at The Young People's Centre (by The Rugby Club) and upstairs at The George Reynolds Centre + outdoors at Henhayes, in Crewkerne.  In Tatworth we're operating at The Memorial Hall where we'll have Youth Zone sessions until Easter.


In an ever-changing world, please check our Facebook pages for latest updates & details, as this website may not be kept fully up to date. Our current Facebook pages are:


     @ActiveLearningandSkills.als         @YouthZone.als          @FunTime.als         @Specialevents.als



We post our plans for sessions, on Facebook too (which can sometimes change at short notice e.g. if weather impacts), so it's a great way to stay up to date & find out more about what we're doing.


For the Fun Time age groups we aim to email parents on the day before / day of a session, with planned activities, relevant info etc, so please feel free to email us & ask to be added to our email list for Fun Time, in Crewkerne & Chard.



We continue to train our teams & develop how we work, to make services as safe, enjoyable and valuable as possible.


  We are happy to discuss any queries / concerns you may have - simply contact us with your details & query & we'll get back in touch.


The continued partnership & support of our key funders, partners & contract holders are massively appreciated in building sustainable & valued services together. Thank you: Chard Area Youth Committee (who in turn receive funding from Chard Town Council), Crewkerne Town Council, Tatworth & Forton Parish Council & Abri.





Active Learning & Skills is a not-for-profit organisation incorporated in 2008, currently delivering services for teenagers and children in South Somerset.


During term time, we usually run Fun Time sessions for children aged 6-11 and Youth Zone for young people aged 11-19. 


In school holidays, we sometimes run activities such as 'Fun-Time Day-Time' events & activities for the Youth Zone age group.
