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 for three years which aims to offer educational resources, training, support, and opportunities to participate in fun and engaging fitness activities which support healthy lifestyles.

We aim to achieve the following outcomes:

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

We were delighted to receive a one year extension to our funding so we are are now in our fourth and final year of funding.

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.
