7. About your project
Please tell us about your project (a strong application will address all of the following):

  • How does your project support local needs and priorities?
  • How have young people been involved in your project so far?
  • How many young people to do you expect to benefit?
  • How will your project be accessible and affordable?
  • How will you encourage volunteering and community involvement?
  • How will you ensure your project is accessible to everyone (Disabled, low incomes, vulnerable, etc.)
  • How will ensure your project is inclusive?
  • How will you work with other community partners?
We offer structured youth led activities for 14-17year olds with weekly meetings and regular weekend trips and longer camps through the year with a strong active outdoor focus. Our 30 youth members are supported by volunteer leaders and parent helpers. We hope that by seeing the fun occasional helpers gradually become regular volunteers. We are an accessible inclusive group welcoming all and adapt activities to individual abilities and needs and reduce or waive subscriptions and activity fees as needed. Our programme focusses on developing skills for life in a supportive environment. Young people have a go and learn a wide range of skills from cooking and debating to navigating and DIY with sports games and adventurous activities. Volunteer leaders can teach many of these and we draw on individuals and voluntary groups to share their talents. Many of our older explorers share their skills and enjoy passing on their skills to others. Our bid is to subsidise throughout the coming year activities requiring NGB qualified instructors and specialist equipment. These challenging activities develop many soft skills and build responsibility resilience teamwork communication and widen horizons of what anyone CAN do. Plus they are exciting and fun.
