The project educates young people about Healthy Eating and aids them to feed themselves. I have worked with a number of students developing this project.The number of people to benefit will depend on the amount of young people put forward.The project is a low cost project and I am able to take it to wherever the Council deem the most accessible we just need tables electricity and waterWe always work with everyone regardless of disabilities and food allergies or intolerances there is always a way to tweak a course to suit the attendees

  • Who in your organisation is ultimately responsible for safeguarding?

I have undertaken the NSPCC Safeguarding online course and have worked with children in and out of schools for 6 years. Our courses are designed to not only educate but also to increase Self Esteem Confidence and Team Building.My staff are educated to ensure that they understand the importance of the safeguarding and are briefed before every session to ensure they safety of teh attendees.Yes they are DBS checkesI am responsible and work with Laura Cady who also manages our HRTHere is no access to online services when using our services and phones are also requested to be left alone during sessions.

9. Monitoring your project
How will you know if your project has been successful?

It is easy to see when a project has been successful from the reactions of the students. Happy students that are impressed with what they have achieved and engaged throughout the session are what we aim to achieve.Ongoing monitoring of their eating habits and confidence would give a truer picture but this is often not possible.We have been given alot of feedback over the years regarding the impact of the classes that we run in terms of confidence self esteem numeracy literacy and also cooking skills and it has always been positive.
