At Yinrgy, we deliver positive mental and physical outcomes for children and young people (CYP) by providing opportunities to engage in sports sessions and hobbies, that allows girls and boys aged 12 to 18 years old to train, develop, and grow together with opportunities that may not have been previously accessible along with an opportunity for 14+ year olds to achieve a Developing Leadership Skills level One Qualification. Swale is an area of multiple deprivation in Kent that is being hit hard by the current cost of living crisis and lack of support interventions. The funding will help to tackle social anxiety, stress, loneliness, low self esteem and behaviours. We are partnering with local businesses to provide opportunities to marginalised young people where these opportunities may not currently be available, and can improve leadership skills, mindset and future prospects.

What we'll deliver:

  • Minimum of 1x2 hour training sessions per week for 12 Months,
  • Provide hobby sessions for Cookery, Art, Drama, Music, Horse Riding
  • Supply access to local therapists
  • Provide OCNLR Level 1 Award in Developing Leadership Skills for 14+
