Our aim is to work with young people aged 8-18 (including SEND) in Bolton (with a particular focus on Farnworth and South-East Bolton) aiming to: -
- Provide activities in safe and secure environments, which promote and enable the development of positive and meaningful relationships, supporting the young people in their journey to reach their full potential living healthy balanced lives.
- Reach Young People in order to encourage and empower them to develop new skills, abilities, experiences and achievements, equipping them to make positive decisions leading to positive impacts in their lives, and the communities they are part of
- Meet the immediate social, emotional and spiritual needs of Young People whilst equipping them with the tools, motivation and ability to meet those needs for themselves in the future.
Earlier this year we decided to convert a small piece of land at the rear of our premises into a grow your own vegetable garden. Our volunteers and young people worked together to create a great space to grow veg. We also have a compost bin and water butt. We are hoping to continue to improve this area and work with young people to show them how to produce their own crop. We are also hoping in 2020 to do the same but at our second location in Prestolee which is based in the heart of the community.
In 2020 we are also hoping to do more litter picks in both Farnworth and Prestolee and look at other community projects to help our environment and make our community a nicer place to live.
