Our YOUth Stars project began in August 2019 following on from a successful funding application to BBC Children in Need.

We received a grant of £ 78,812 to deliver a Youth Club which aims to offer educational resources, training, support, and opportunities to participate in fun and engaging fitness activities which support healthy lifestyles.

 

We intend on achieving the following outcomes:

  • Improving independent action
  • Improving health
  • Increasing self-esteem

 

We are now in our third and final year of funding but have applied for an extension which would allow us to carry on for a fourth year. We will find out in March 2022 if we have been granted an extension.

 

The funds received from BBC Children in Need have covered everything from management costs, staffing costs, to equipment, training, transport, and venue hire which have often been needed during the school holidays. YOUth Stars is free for children aged 11 – 18.
