  • Need

    Need

    The disadvantaged young people we work with come from poor homes where diet and fitness is a huge issue as well as money.
    We are going through extensive public service cuts at the moment and we find it hard to attract funds to keep the centre going. Our projects provide diversionary activity and skill building that helps young people to be more work ready and steers them away from becoming economically inactive after leaving school and more marginalised in their community.

    Solution

    It will give them transferable skills and soft skills as well as increase their sense of well-being and self-worth. It will give them the skills to grow and cook their own food to increase their health and physical fitness.
    It will also encourage inter-generational working relationships at the allotment as we build positive relationships with the other, older allotment holders.
