Campus Holidays Build Confidence
Our 2019 Residential Project will run for five weeks during the summer holidays, providing a total of 150 disadvantaged children from Merseyside with a break from challenging home lives. Through participating in a structured programme of activities that they wouldn’t otherwise be able to access, with support from trained volunteers, children will increase their confidence and self-esteem, make friends, and develop positive memories upon which they can subsequently reflect.
We are very grateful to Whirlwind Charitable Trust for providing funding for 15 ‘Young Helpers’ – trained former service users, aged 14-17 – to volunteer on Residential Project in 2019. The opportunity to take on real responsibility in a supported environment will enable them to develop skills, increase confidence and aspirations, and gain experience to support applications to jobs, training or further study.
