Take 1 reaches, develops and brings about positive change for those hardest to reach within the disadvantaged communities of Nottingham’s inner city.  Our courses and training programmes steer young people away from crime, towards education and employment.


We are a long established community organisation set up as a registered charity. Our centre for education, dance, music and more has welcomed countless young people through its doors, giving them a chance to learn, grow and develop their skills. Take 1 care deeply about our local community and are able to offer our young people a wide range of programmes and opportunities, building towards qualifications that they may not have otherwise received.


Young people who are not in mainstream education can take part in our wide variety of courses to earn vital qualifications. They can visit our dance studios to learn from our team of professional dance teachers, or get their musical talents noticed by coming to our fully equipped recording studio, learn more about recording music or, learn  and develop skills in sound engineering. If you would like to know more about Take 1, get in touch with us today. Give us a call, send us an email or come down and visit our home in Hyson Green.


You can find us on Gregory Boulevard next door to the New Art Exchange. If reaching us through public transport hop on a tram heading to either Hucknall or Phoenix Park from the city centre. Get off at ‘The Forest’ stop and take a quick 2 minute walk down the scenic Gregory Boulevard.
