Our Communities

As an independent and community led organisation we are able to provide a service which is right for everyone involved rather than having to work to other peoples’ agendas. The project is run by a Management Group on which all communities who join have equal representation and hence a role to play in shaping the work of the project. Our service provides:
  • Fully qualified professional Youth and Community Development staff.
  • Professional support and supervision for all staff by our appointed independent provider, “Inspired to Achieve”.
  • Access to support and advice in establishing and maintaining quality youth provision – policies, best practice and legal requirements.
  • Insurance for youth workers and activities.
  • Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) disclosure management and child protection arrangements.
  • Consultation with young people in your community.
  • A fully tailored support package relevant to your community – you can buy in as much or as little as you require.
  • Established links with and work in local schools, including Stanchester Academy.
  • Access to fundraising support for your group’s projects.
  • Support to the recruitment, training and development of local volunteers.
  • Organisation and running of trips, activities and events.
  • Opportunities for joint working with other local communities and youth groups.
