We are a newly established (2017) community interest company with charitable visions and values based in Billingham operating throughout Tees Valley.
A grassroots company committed to delivering a quality service, which is not only value for money, but has tangible benefits for young people and communities we work with.
Our passion is working with young people, enabling young people to make positive changes. Working with diverse communities, empowering them to become involved in community life through intergenerational projects, creative arts, education and support groups.
The Youth Bus (Elsie)
This project is a unique mobile double decker bus project that aims to give young people a safe environment in which to participate in positive activities, through pop up youth club provision.
Elsie can also be used as a mobile classroom for young people delivering a range of courses for personal and social development such as drug awareness, relationship and sex education, mental health awareness and E-Safety.
The Bike Project
Stockton’s shabby and unloved bikes are being repaired and put back to good use. The cycle project gives young people, the chance to learn new skills, gain a recognised qualification and give something back to their community.
The young people work for ten hours on a voluntary basis repairing old bikes, recycling parts from other bikes and renewing brake and gear cables. At the same time, they are working towards an accreditation opportunity.
When most young people complete the course they get to keep the bike, while for others it may be more appropriate to donate the made-over cycle to a charity or needy person from their community.
The Retreat aims to provide a safe place for vulnerable young people and adults to encourage participation in support groups that gives them access to equipment for hobbies, education, advocacy and volunteering opportunities.
We have a workshop space that is welcoming and the facility to allow your creative side to be explored or just enjoy each other’s company.
We can tailor the activities towards the groups needs we have previously included art projects, and chill out recreation times.
Our retreat vibe continues the work we do in the community – life is very much our philosophy and we will use our skills to ensure there is a balance that promotes healthy lifestyles – a healthy you.
We can pop along to support your community or corporate events or even plan a community event from scratch and tailor it just for you.
We can take away the stress of event planning or support your own community event and provide a Youth Bus with activities and workers to bring a real fun element to any event.
Top extra’s we can bring along and tailor a package that suits you:
• Bouncy Castle • Combat Inflatable • Circus Skills
