Arctic Piranha – Saturday nights - Arc Stockton.  7:30 until 10:30. £3:50 (carers free) – 01642 525186

This amazing club night has come about at the request of Learning Disabled people in the Tees Valley who are looking for somewhere safe to enjoy a night-clubbing experience.

It has been conceived and designed by disabled people who came up with the name and also the theme for the night - Snow and Ice. They have also picked the playlist, the bands, the props, the menu and even the recipes for a piranha cocktail and mocktail. You can even learn the words and dance moves to the Arctic Piranha Song!

The club night is designed to be a safe space, with a chill out area, but if you usually bring a carer or support worker to events and activities don’t forget to bring someone along for this event, as it is not something we can provide.

Learning disabled adults want to be treated as adults and so Arctic Piranha is an 18+ event, as any nightclub would be, and we will be experimenting with how late it stays open in future.

Please bring extra money for food and drink.

Food, cocktails and mocktails as well as other drinks from the bar are all available and priced very reasonably. Other tickets are £3.50. Tickets can be purchased from

1. Blossom Project

 The project provides targeted support for young women aged 16 – 24 years living in the Stockton area who are at significant risk of poor outcomes due to a range of vulnerabilities and complex needs. A key aspiration of the project is to prevent the exploitation of vulnerability and routes into survival sex work.

The Blossom service offers to empower and advocate for young women and support them to:

•Build emotional resilience and social capital

•Make positive life-choices and

•Realise their aspirations/fulfil their potential

The Blossom project will use a delivery model around three core decisive actions of Reach-Engage-Empower. Working in close partnership with a number of local agencies we will work to achieve our overarching goal:

“Vulnerable young women who have accessed our service have a positive vision of womanhood, are purposefully engaged in education or training, free from addictions and exploitation and empowered to the lives they want to lead.”

We look to do this via a range of different activities:




•1:1 support

•Therapeutic group work

•Personal counselling

•Family mediation

•Employability and work related support

•Mental health and work related support through rolling programmes

•Health and fitness programmes

•Healthy lifestyle and life skills programmes

2 Liberty Project

provides an outreach, engagement and recovery service to sexually exploited women involved in opportunistic and survival sex work/prostitution. Women involved in survival sex work are part of a nocturnal economy which makes them hidden and hard to reach. Most suffer with poor physical, mental and sexual health and struggle with unresolved issues related to historic child sex abuse or family breakdown/being in care. They are entrenched in high risk behaviours, lack of confidence; skills and to support to engage in training/employment and are reluctant to engage with mainstream services.

Our service aims to reach, engage and empower in a uniquely holistic way as part of a focused recovery journey that addresses their immediate needs for safety and inclusion and over time supports and empowers them to exit and break free from these exploitative situations

We work in partnership with a range of agencies across the area and are key members of the Stockton Sex Workers Forum and founder members of the North East Sex Workers Forum as a campaigning/influencing and learning body for the region. Our strength is the longevity of our engagement with the women to bring about and sustain positive change.

Our approach involves:

•1:1 intensive recovery support Comic Relief logo

•Low threshold drop-in for vulnerable women

•Drop-in for women on caseload who have or are sex working

•Independent living programmes

•Health and fitness programmes

•Wellbeing Activity group

•Therapeutic programmes

•1:1 counselling

•Outreach twice a week

•Offering practical support through food parcels, toiletry packs, clothes, hot food, safety packs, harm minimisation and needle exchange

•Family support
