We independently fundraise to provide much needed free out-of-school provision and things to do for young people and families in Bristol. We always aim to run free provisions for children and young people in every school holiday throughout the year. For a city with such a wealth of culture and art, exciting activities and opportunities, it can be astonishing to learn about the deprivation many residents experience. Every child should be able to enjoy the school holidays, a time to relax, have fun, and experience enriching activities. This, however, is not the case for hundreds of families in Bristol.
We have 7 years of experience working with children in our communities, because of this we have strong relationships with many agencies and schools who we work together with to ensure children are as protected and nurtured as possible.
By taking part in our stimulating and creative activities, children are able to develop better communication and social skills – and are given an opportunity to express themselves. Having increased confidence and self-worth can help tackle low self esteem, which often occurs in vulnerable young people.
All of the activities that the young people take part in are accessible and designed for all abilities. This, coupled with the leaders excellent behaviour management skills and compassion, creates a safe and stimulating space for children to enjoy and flourish in.
