Here to support local projects that make Crawley an even better place to live, work and play
Last time we updated our equipment was about 10 years ago and during this time we have had 100's of Young people taking part of in the award scheme. As you can appreciate the wear and tear that has taken place and also in some cases damage to the equipment. Until now we have also done our best to repair/fix what we can but now we have reached a stage we need to buy new equipment In order to continue to delivering the award efficiently and safely, hence we need need new equipment such as Tents, Trangiers, Safety equipment and much more. This year we have had a lot of interest by children as number of schoold such as Hazelwick, Holy Trinity, Ifiled and St wilfrids are not running the award this year or have very limited spaces and hence the children want to sign up or been referred to us by WSCC D of E Team. Therefore your help would be really appreciated.

Why it's a great idea:

As i said our equipment is old about and by your support we will be able continue deliver the award scheme and help develope the social education side to these youngsters and let them experience new things which many may not have the opportunity otherwise. The D of E Scheme in inclusive helps the children to build confidence, make new friends, social Develpoment, learn/experience new things. We have already had an open evening for 2019 and we have taken on 36 new bronze and 28 silvers as well as our gold participants and have a waiting lists for the bronze, so you can see how popular the award is. With this as an inclusive centre we have children who are on pupil premium, children in care, learning difficults, ADHD as well as others, so you can see the benefit the award will bring to them.
