Children and Young People

1/5

The number one request from local residents is for more activities and projects that benefit children and young people.

 

We are focussed on helping the children and young people living in Haverhill South to access  recreational, learning and social activities at the start of the project but now we are focusing on hearing what young people's hopes and dreams are for the area and what they would like to change and create an environment where young people are connected and valued and seen by the wider community in a positive light.

For example, this includes projects that:

  • Commission and train local youth workers to engage with young people, so young people can be heard 

  • Develop a youth forum so young people can develop an action plan relevant to them and see it through
