MY STORY OUR STORY

Born to Perform

32 were successful, ranging from actors, comedians, violinists, singers and dancers all of which made a great variety show.
The group have been so successful they have been asked to perform time and time again and now meet at the Youth Club at Park Centre
 

Park Centre

Creative and confidence building Support

Our regular residentials provide opportunities for young people to move

out of their comfort zones and experience new

challenges.  Our regular play schemes are flexible and allow those taking part to be involved in choosing and planning the structured activities and trips.  There is a wide of activities including arts and crafts, sports, IT, cooking and team games.

 

Emotional Support

Our centres provide safe spaces for children and young people to develop and grow.  Led by young peoples needs we have identified and provided support with issues such citizenship, team building, bullying and meditation.  We access the Think Twice and ABC projects that deal with gang culture and gun and knife crime.  Our regular residentials provide opportunities for young people to move out of their comfort zones and experience new challenges.

 

Education and training support

The Signpost project based in the Steel Inn Centre works with young people aged 13-21 years not in employment, education or training (NEET)  to encourage healthy living, independent living skills and practical and emotional support through a variety of projects.  All work is nationally accredited with the focus being on literacy and numeracy up to Level 2.  Referral is via local schools, agencies, Connexions or self-referral.  They are able to provide specific support for young people with disabilities or special needs. 

The Work based learning programme is based at Park Centre.  It offers volunteer placements for young people to gain skills and opportunities.  Current placements include childcare and property management. The programme also offers the option to include courses in basic skills, English and Maths.

The Ted Wragg fund is administered through MCDT.  This fund provides financial assistance for individuals up to £150 for education, personal development or training. Recent successful  applications include: equipment for courses, life guard certificate, stationery, uniforms, travel passes and interview clothing.

 

Practical Support
 
We have supported young people to start new groups that plan their own activities such as walking groups or developing personal and independent living skills through cooking, budgeting and food safety
 
We offer sexual health outreach and a drop in service in Park Centre.
 

Giving something back

Our Children and Young People's programme gives opportunities for local people to get involved through, mentoring and volunteering.  We have helped our volunteers to access training and supported them to deliver services locally.
