Making Life Better!

To save our open accessed youth provision, which is currently struggling to continue due to on-going revenue & staffing costs. We don't want to lose what we have, but to be able to sustain this going forward & continue giving young people somewhere safe, and fun to attend, & better chances in life

  • Need


    We have been running our open access youth provision since 1998. Over recent years this has become harder to sustain, meaning that we have subsidised our provision from our annual reserves. We are at a crucial point now going forward to retain the charity. We are seeking funding to give us core costs to gain time to explore other avenues of sustainability and project development. We don't want to lose what we have worked on for 18 years, and know is still very much needed in our community.


    By having funding to help cover core costs, this will enable us to continue our project further, and give time to explore other ways of sustaining what we have. We still have a real need by members to access our provision, to gain social skills, develop themselves and have better chances in the future. We are in a disadvantaged area and know some young people struggle to gain the support they need elsewhere. We want to give stability to the project and to our young members.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To provide evening and holiday provision for young people aged 8+


    » Work on fundraising to cover core costs of the project

    What success will look like

    Covering costs of over-heads, without the need to reduce our actual opening times. Engaging with approx 350 young people annually

  • Impact


    More sustainability for the project and an opportunity to take stock of where we're at, develop alternative income streams/revenue going forward to be more sustainable.


    Lack of income coming in, could mean a reduction in the service we offer to young people, and possible closure. This could also result in loss of staff and volunteers in the interim. We would work on motivating staff/members and volunteers by demonstrating the work going into this campaign


    Through a range of media - eg: bi-monthly newsletters, social media, emails and letters
