Greening Days! aka Sustainability Days!

We have been selected by Groundworks UK for a grant to support our schools’ Greening Day project and we’ve signed up three out of our four schools for an amazing day of expert led activities for an entire student cohort.
Students will take part in a range of hands-on experiential activities and environmental workshops including pond building, making pollinator and small mammal habitats, bird and bat boxes and sowing wildflower meadows, planning orchards and hedgerows and workshops on sustainable technology and natural systems. Schools will end up with an improved site with potential for outdoor learning and increased wildlife plus great ideas for staff and management.
We’ve one more school to sign up – let us know if it could be yours!

Creative Camping 2016

DSC_0217Creative Camping 2016 will be the best yet with 7 camps planned for disabled and non-disabled young people to develop confidence, independence and expectations of self and others. Read our camps flyer for info camps coming up. We’ll be on the water, at the seaside, up mountains, in the woods and with the birds this year….

With funding from Children in Need we’ll be supporting campers to meet up and socialise between camps too.

If you know a young person who’d like to join us on any of our camps let us know. We also love young volunteers age 18+, disabled and non-disabled.

 

Access Bike

Access Bike has been so popular in 2015 that we couldn’t actually meet the demand. So that we can grow this important project sustainably for 2016 and beyond we’re setting it up as a youth led social enterprise. We’ve funding to kit out a workshop and we’ll be starting supported sessions this summer!

We’re looking for sponsorship to train two technicians and two coaches, for racking and storage units for the workshop and for mentors to support young people on their learning journey. 

We’ve an amazing new site for the project at Brimscombe Port, supported by the Grace Network, right next door to Rush skate park – how awesome is that!

If you want to be a volunteer mentor or know anyone that might get in touch.
