Nailsea's Area 6t5 Youth Club, in High Street, was given £1,600 from North Somerset Council to pay for the equipment.

The cash has paid for new desks, chairs, two computers and software.

It has enabled staff to update the existing IT facilities and replace some kitchen equipment.

Karen Pike, project director from Foreal Youth Works, said: "IT plays such a big part in young people's lives and the funding has made it possible for us to provide young people with up to date information advice and guidance.

"It has enabled youth workers to support our members in completing homework and other lifestyle tasks while they are at youth club."

Foreal runs three sessions in Nailsea at the moment.
