Fantastic news everyone…. we have been successful in getting the Big Lottery Funding!!!!!!!
This means we now have a pretty large pot of money for our project and so can begin to plan lots of exciting opportunities for this year and next. The focus group will have a central role to play in the management of the project and will act as the voice for young people.
They are your representative and each youth centre has at least one so speak to your youth worker to find out who they are and get your voice heard by speaking to them. Throughout the project they will be asking for your views and opinions so they can tell us exactly what you want.
The good news was announced at the focus group meeting on Monday this week. Thanks to all of you who attended. It was almost a full house and really promising start to what looks like a busy year ahead!
We spent some time getting know each other (again….after a lengthy summer break!), discussed the autum/winter activities (see the new post), and talked about ideas for a residential on which the representatives would begin the Young Leaders Programme.
The evening was completed with a trip to Nando’s, which was a first for many! Anyway I’ll leave it up to them to tell you their experiences of the night!
