Providing positive activities and developmental opportunities for young people in South West Wilts
Seeds4Success is a youth work charity based in South West Wiltshire and covering the community areas of Mere, Tisbury and Wilton. We provide young people with a number of different opportunities to develop themselves and their own skills, from sports to environmental conservation, and to gain qualifications for this. Young people are also encouraged to take responsibility within their community through volunteering opportunities for which they can earn 'credits' to be spent on reward activities.Why the community needs us
As well as helping to develop a sense of community amongst young people across a wide geographical area, Seeds4Success aims to build a more positive image of young people within the wider community. Our Leisure Credits project, for instance, has allowed young people to work together to benefit their local area, through activities such as footpath clearance and stile-building. We have also worked with local groups supporting older community residents and run activities for younger children.Our impact on the community
Our work benefits young people in a number of different ways. As well as helping to enhance personal and social skills, young people have the opportunity to try new activities, earn rewards for their hard work and forge strong relationships with their peers and our staff. We work hard to ensure that young people know they have a safe space where they can socialise with their friends, and run projects which allow us to support them in terms of both physical and mental health.
