To provide a service second to none that works with and for young people. We create and deliver bespoke programmes that are designed to engage,stimulate and motivate. Our projects aim to enhance young people's confidence and self esteem, improve their empoyability and social skills. Young people are the core of our work and we encourage their involvement at all stages in the development of the provision through evaluations, committees, user groups and with two seats on our Board of Directors.
We employ local people with the skills, knowledge and enthusiasm to deliver the services we provide. We work alongside many other voluntary and statutory organisations to ensure that as a whole we are providing the appropriate services that benefit the young people and the wider commnity. Many of the young people now represent their peers on a range of committees, boards and working groups, ensuring that young people's voices and opinions are taken into account.
During 2009/10 we worked alongside 900 + young people with many averaging over 500 hours on various positive activities and projects. 700 gained a recorded outcome or accreditation through AQA, Asdan and City and Guilds. With many acknowledging this was their first identifiable achievement. Through our volunteering programmes the young people have gained invaluable transferable skills as well as working towards community cohesion.
