New stretch target

We can provide more services for longer, provide a short residential for training volunteers.

Open access youth clubs provide a safe place for young people to socialise , feel accepted, have fun, try new things and get support when needed . Our Charity  runs youth clubs in Wareham, Wool, and Corfe with Qualified Youth Workers. Since August 2016 over 1,000 young people have used our services. 

Young people tell us  youth club is fun and makes a difference to them, they feel safe, accepted, supported, some have been on training for volunteers. They welcome the opportunity to feel good, have confidence and socialise.    

Qualified youth workers run ten  open access youth club sessions each week, with CAB, football matches with Police, weekly counsellor  and support from Dorset MIND, provide sexual health and relationship support, offer some residential opportunities and trips, young volunteer's training, support a boxIng club, and D of E group. PYCF run a young carer's surfing residential.  We work with Koru art and drama therapy,  Safe Schools and Community Team , Schools, Reach, DCC, Parish Councils, Town Councils, local businesses and Health . We offer targeted groups, We have updated parts of the centre , hire it out and offer specific support to schools and others.

The Gateway club for adults with a learning  disability meet each week and some youth club members have been supporting their activities and  trips. The Not so Youth Club for over 50s meets one morning a week . 

All our activities   help prevent isolation and promote good wellbeing. learning and fun.
