Motivated by God's love, we enable, encourage and equip the young people of Weston to live life to the full and to contribute to the wider community. We are: Passionate about young people; their whole lives, Christ centred; working with integrity, Community rooted; empowering and inclusive, Faith governed; professional and high quality.Why the community needs us
We provide a fun & safe place for the young people on the estate to spend their free time. We support students in school by mentoring them on a 121 basis, this can be to support a whole variety of issues such as school attendance, behaviour, or an unstable home life. We provide opportunities for the young people that they may not get to experience otherwise: weekends away, holiday camps and various trips. We have a good relationship with schools on the estate & work closely with them.Our impact on the community
Through building up good relationships we have seen many young people come along to our clubs, who when they are old enough, have become sessional workers for us. We have seen a big increase in volunteers amongst the young people too, helping out at clubs for children young than them. This is very empowering for them & gives them a chance to spend their time in a positive way. We have seen a number of students conquoer issues of poor school attendance and behaviour through our programmes.
Yes - we are always looking for good volunteers who are passionate about young people and want to provide the support for the work we do.
