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.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 200 to 250 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.
Volunteers can attend play and youth work sessions with sessional staff, serve on the Trustee Board, or engage in fundraising activities on our behalf.
