Firecracker is an Acis owned project that aims to tackle social isolation amongst young people.

This year’s Firecracker is a little bit different with sessions promoting financial and social inclusion. There is also the launch of mini firecracker; an activity afternoon aimed at younger people aged 8 to 16.

All activity nights are held at the Gainsborough Uphill Community Centre every Friday between 26 January to 23 February from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.

This year we are working with Positive Futures, The Studio, Lincolnshire Police, Lincolnshire Fire Service and St John's Ambulance, we are also excited to be working with a range of new agencies to provide information about living healthy and safe lives. This includes sessions from, Young Addaction, Prison Me No Way, Positive Health Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership.

Weekly activities include as usual:

  • Sports
  • Nail art
  • Music / chat room
  • Craft activities
  • Food prep activity

A free hot meal and drink is provided for all attendees.

Mini Firecracker will be held in February half term - on 16 February between 2.30 and 4.30pm and there will be sports, graffiti art and pizza.

Consent forms for both are available from Acis House or from the Gainsborough Uphill Community Centre. Alternatively speak to Penny Shaw on 0800 027 2057.
