NEW YOUTH CLUB LAUNCHED IN OLDHAM
In partnership with Full Circle North West and Great Places Housing, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Manchester have opened a new youth club in Chadderton, Oldham.
Thanks to a successful Awards for All funding application the Crossley Centre have been able to employ staff to run the club for a year, but the aim is to attract, train and support local volunteers to take on the running of the club.
The club officially launched on Friday 11th January and around 20 young people were in attendance.
There were also around 10 volunteers who arrived expressing a willingness to help out at the new provision.
A volunteer programme is now being put in place to train volunteers young and old in safeguarding, first aid, youth work and running activities.
We are also thankful to the High Sheriff’s Trust Fund who have made a grant to purchase new equipment.
This is an exciting project and one that we hope to replicate in the future.
