Enabling communities to make great projects happen in West Sussex
The Streetmate Team needs a new good quality vehicle to continue their work with young people across Sussex. The mobile unit will be stocked with sports, craft and musical equipment for use in a range of settings to allow young people to be active, be challenged and a safe space to talk about the issues they face. Interior seating, 4G internet access, facilities for providing drinks, gazebo and / or side extension when on site, small portable stage, ultra quiet generator are just some of the things on our wishlist for this mobile unit / office / youth space. With facilities for music recording and the chance to sing and play their own beats this multi-purpose project vehicle will create opportunities for young people in communities across Sussex. Young people will be supported to help design the exterior for a vehicle that will be attractive and ready to serve in a variety of communities.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Streetmate has been in existence as a project in Mid-Sussex for over 15 years operating in areas of deprivation and / or disadvantage. Our recent work has been credited with combating low-level drug use by young people on one estate, gaining feedback about the changes they want to see in their community, and supporting young people to make positive choices and getting involved in volunteering. Our Streetmate Detached Team has a range of case studies of the difference they have made in the lives of young people. Before it became too old for use the former vehicle was well-known to young people in a number of different estates. From summer projects, support at fundays and fetes, to cold dark and wet evenings the Streetmate Team have become trusted professionals able to support young people. We have a growing demand for our services and a new (er) vehicle will make a great difference to the work we can do.
