AMOUNT AWARDED: £2,000
The new club will offer local children and young people a regular place to meet, join in activities and an opportunity to become involved in planning new and additional activities and interests. The benefits, difference and outcomes for children and young people will include:
New interests and hobbies
Develop learning and skills
Increased confidence and self-esteem
Positive relationships and friendships
Opportunities to plan new activities
Planning, decision making and negotiation skills
Opportunities to gain awards and recognition for volunteering
Opportunities for young people to act as youth workers with children
Opportunities to experience urban life
Opportunities to travel
Why were they chosen?
There has not been a community-based youth club in Staffin for around 15 years. Our young people either have to travel up to 20 miles to Portree for activities or do without any local services or support.
