Our fantastic team work with schools and families to deliver a safe, active and healthy provision for children. We utilise funding from Worcestershire Children's First to support healthy eating and activeness with children aged 5-12.
YOUNG ADVENTURERS CLUB
The Adventure has Begun
The experiences that we give children live on in their memory for years to come and can assist their own development in several different ways. To primary schools across the area that we cover, we are offering a six week programme, spread over six sessions. Whether that be lunchtime, enrichment or after school!
The activities that children will be involved in include, orienteering, archery, bushcraft and team challenge. Interested? Get your school to drop us an email!
Following the success of our pilot virtual orienteering project with DY1O Big Local, we are expanding our virtual orienteering to the rest of the Wyre Forest. This is a fantastic opportunity to explore your local area and get outdoors, whether that's for a breathe of fresh air in the winter or just somewhere to go during the summer.
For years we have been delivering Outreach programmes to communities. Our activities are deployed from our activity trailer and link with local organisations to deliver an unforgettable experience.
Activities include: Sports, inflatables, archery and crazy golf. All delivered FREE for the community.
BIRCHEN COPPICE AND RIFLE RANGE YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROJECT
Upon a successful summer of deliver we are now focusing our efforts on supporting children and young people in the Birchen Coppice and Rifle Range estate with Outreach events, holiday clubs, youth drop ins and support services.
Most youth services have been pulled from these estates over the last 5 years. Through the services that we offer we aim to break down the barriers for children and young people and give them more opportunities to engage with external sports, organisations, businesses and individuals.
COMMUNITY RENEWAL FUND
This programme is funded to support young people aged 16 - 24 to gain skills that will lead to a form of employment. We are working with The Money Charity, Community Housing and Job Centre Plus in a combined programme to deliver to sixth forms and communities across the Wyre Forest.
These programmes will be piloted till June 2022. If successful will be continued from September 2022.
