  • Need

    Need

    Our work is focused on children from the Killisick area of Arnold, the Killisick Ward is shown to be in the top 20% of deprived wards nationally, as shown by its Indices of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) Score. Through our experience of working in this area we are aware of the relative poverty and vulnerability of many of these children. In addition, our clubs focus on inclusion of children coping with difficult home lives and social exclusion.

    Solution

    The difference our clubs make in the life of the children are:
    1) Through play and learning;
    2) Strong existing links with local schools and community groups;
    3) Through reducing anti-social behaviour;
    4) Positive role models for children are provided.
