About this cause
We make a positive difference to young people's lives through our youth club which opens 3-4 nights a week, 48 weeks per year. We provide a safe, caring environment for young people aged 8-19. We offer a range of sporting, creative arts and outdoor activities. Our club has pool tables, table tennis and computers as well as indoor and outdoor football courts. We work in an area which suffers from deprivation and inequality. This means that children and young people in the area do not have access to many opportunities or experiences outside of school. Through our own research and consultation, we have identified a need for a new school holiday programme to cater for these young people, their families, and the wider community.
How this cause brings people in the community together
The project will bring young people living in the community together through fun sports and creative arts activities. We will work closely with local schools in the area to promote the project. We will also advertise our project through the youth club and in local shops, community noticeboards, websites, and community venues to encourage community cohesion and social integration.
