We've discovered a gap in youth work provision: young people are being referred for their education outside of the borough of their residence. We want to create a therapeutic pupil referral unit within the facility that we already have to meet their needs, but also support their families through crisis. Yet, beyond that, we want to renovate our repurposed factory unit to bring a holistic approach to youth work in the Torfaen Borough. After school homework clubs for those who don't have access to a computer, a safe space for young people to hang out, and the opportunity to learn necessary life skills We're in talks with the local schools, the local police, other youth work provisions, but really need the finance necessary to bring the dream to life. With the space we have, the passionate volunteers waiting to get stuck in and the links with the local area, we have a crucial opportunity to really make a difference. Please consider partnering with us or get in touch to find out more.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
For those in the pupil referral unit: the education and support they need to make it through crisis to whole life success. To those who attend the many different projects that grow around our PRU provision: the life skills, the safe environment to grow in confidence post COVID-19, the opportunity to be who they've always dreamed to be. Now I know this sounds idealistic, but that's where we're at. We're dreaming big, believing for more, and wanting to get stuck into the hard work of making this dream the very real reality it has the chance to be. That's why we're looking for the fees to get the necessary architects plans, to then get the builders in, provide the quote, and to build the space. I have the time, energy and passion, to do the research, reach the young people, and walk through life with them, but not the funding to get this things going. Within three years the project will support itself and we have a clear plan to get us there, we just need to get started.
