Our project has been funded by the Youth Social Action Programme
We are delighted to share the news that we have been awarded a grant of £4,390 towards our project: ‘#iwill volunteers will enable children with additional needs to take part’.
This grant will be invaluable in enabling us to continue our work in developing a more inclusive community for all. It will allow us to recruit, train, screen and support 10 volunteers who will then be able to help 10 of our children to participate in, and have fun, at their mainstream activity for a whole year whilst their families get valuable, regular respite.
#iwill is a UK-wide campaign aiming to get 6 out of 10 young people involved in social action by 2020.
Social action involves activities such as campaigning, fundraising and volunteering, all of which enable participants to make a positive difference to their communities.
Social action develops the skills and knowledge of young people that employers look for.
