Youth provision for 10-18 year olds in Malvern with a focus on those from deprived wards
To empower young people (10-18 years) in the Malvern area to be resilient and fulfill their potential through providing activities which promote well-being, encourage self-esteem and confidence while providing alternatives to antisocial behavior and harmful activities. We support vulnerable young people from deprived areas of Malvern and a third come from the Pickersleigh ward where 32% of the population are deprived in two or more dimensions. Our spaces and sessions give them places to socialise where they feel safe and build supportive networks with peers. Some are set up so that they can share experiences such as issues around gender identify or mental health. Our Youth Forum gives them a voice, allowing them to shape provision and engage with wider issues. We work with our local community, local partners and the Cube community center to integrate our work with wider activities.Why the community needs us
By providing activities for young people we empower them with skills and enthusiasm to help their community. They contribute through being involved in local events and also participate in surveys which help shape provision in their area. Our sessions also provide them with alternatives to anti-social behavior which makes Malvern a safer, more pleasant place to be.Our impact on the community
We have approximately 150 young people attending our service each year. They enjoy social activities, learn new skills, get help with the issues they are struggling with, learn how to look after themselves, develop better resilience, learn ways to support their mental health and develop relationships with trusted adults who they can share concerns with. As a result of engaging with the wider community they feel that they have a place and are a part of Malvern life.
An interest in helping young people to fulfil their potential.
