Grove Corner is a youth hub in the heart of Dunstable. Grove Corner offers provision for young people, 4 evenings per week. With the brand new state of the arts gaming suite, featuring high spec gaming machines, the latest VRs and fully functioning gaming chairs; free pool and a multipurpose entertainment box; including chrome casting and connecting to Bluetooth to play your own music; Grove Corner caters for all.

Currently due to government guidance, some sessions at Grove Corner sessions need to be pre-booked prior to attendance due to only 15 people per session being able to attend. Social distancing, masks (unless except) and hand sanitization will be required.

Drop in sessions are for young people to do exactly that (however until government guidance changes, these sessions will currently need to be booked prior to attending) drop-in for as long as a young person wants to enjoy the Grove Corner facilities with friends, speak to youth workers and be involved in discussions and chat about current and emerging issues young people may be facing or know someone who is experiencing.

Pokémon has been popular for many years. The dedicated group is for playing and trading cards, being involved in Pokémon gaming and having a safe space to attend, catch up with friends and have Pokémon battles.

The gaming sessions are specifically for young people to come and game. This is available to do on the gaming machines or on the state of the art VRs. These sessions are open to beginners or those who are more advanced in their gaming. It is a chance to learn from one another and share knowledge and have fun

Grove Corner is used as a community hub in the day and a youth hub at night. Grove Corner is hired by many community groups; including Noah, CIL, Minds2gether and Central Bedfordshire Council Youth Services.
