Providing free support, play and youth provision to children and young people in Rushmoor
A creative and innovative organisation putting fun and enjoyment at the heart of delivery. We are a social enterprise that proactively supports children and young people, particularly those living in areas of multiple deprivation and the issues they face. Respect for children and young people underpins all of our work along with raising aspirations through the delivery of high quality, free, open-access provision.Why the community needs us
We help children and young people to access free activities outside of school. We support young people with issues that affect them and the whole community - such as drug and alcohol use and misuse, sexual health education, self-esteem, anger challenges. We also help to safeguard children and young people by liaising with schools, CAMHS, Children's Services, Youth Offending Team, Catch 22, Step by Step and the police. We enable children to be happy and safe in a nurturing environment.Our impact on the community
Over 700 children and young people attend our sessions in a year, over 240 return regularly each week. We support hard to reach, challenging young people who find it difficult to engage with other services. We help young people to write CV's, apply for jobs and provide 1:1 coaching to help and support them through challenging circumstances.
We are always interested in volunteers who are able to work with children and young people - particularly those who have a particular skill or talent to share (art/photography/DJ/music etc). Must be able to work in the evenings.
