On the seventh day of Christmas my good friends brought to me…🎁
As part of The LGA Foundation Christmas Campaign North Benwell Youth Project have used their festive funding to put together food packs and provide fleece blankets to the families across the local community. The food packs contain much needed food supplies from pasta, tea, coffee, cereals and sweet treats! They also are giving fleece blankets to help to provide additional warmth throughout the colder months. The Project also plan to buy chickens and vegetables to give to families and help them to have a lovely festive lunch!
North Benwell Youth Project aims to help young people up to the age of 25 living in North Benwell, focusing on leisure time activities to help to develop young people’s capabilities so that they may grow to full maturity as individuals and members of society. They are young person led and provide a compassionate, safe and supportive space for young people in the community. The project offers engagement work, group work, one-on-one sessions and drop in sessions in order to aid the exploration of relationship issues, practice life skills and help to build confidence.
North Benwell Youth Project also runs holiday programmes, giving opportunities for young people to gain confidence and participate in something new and rich in learning through more adventurous activities and residential trips.
