Market Harborough | Health & Wellbeing


Raised in 2024




All fundraisers

We help vulnerable and isolated children and young people across Harborough District in South Leicestershire, in the context of their families and communities. We do this by providing play and youth work activity sessions, clubs, and projects in villages and towns across this large rural area, using "The Chill Out Bus" mobile project vehicle or community venues.

As well as our Chill Out Clubs we deliver a fortnightly Young Carers group to support young people aged 11-18 in the Harborough District who care for someone at home, a weekly Young Parents Group in partnership with Home-Start South Leicestershire, offering peer support and giving opportunities and ideas for families to play together with the aim of improving parental confidence, reducing isolation and aiding child development, and we have recently begun offering 1:1 mentoring support for young people know to the charity who would benefit from further support through out Mentoring Project, designed to help respond to the identified growing concern around young people experiencing difficulties in their mental wellbeing.

Why the community needs us
We are a locally based, locally focused children and young people's activities charity, and were created in 2012 by a partnership of local people and professionals who highlighted gaps in provision and services for local children and young people.

Our impact on the community
We support around 250 to 300 different children and young people each year with the main focus being to help them to improve their health & well-being (both physical and mental/emotional), improve their relationships (with peers and adults), increase their pride (in themselves, their identity, and their communities), and improve their skills & knowledge for life and/or vocations.
