Rowhedge Youth Club

Essex Youth Service in Colchester has been supporting one of our local Community Groups - Rowhedge Youth Club for over a year now. The youth club operates once a week from a village hall in Rowhedge.

We have provided a qualified youth worker who has helped with curriculum planning, health and safety, safeguarding and much more. Recently we were able to support them with completing a funding application to cover the cost of the hall, resources, and specialist arts and sports coaches to deliver sessions at the club.

I am delighted to say that the club received £2,225, which will enable them to continue to offer a youth club once a week from the Village Hall. The attendance has also quadrupled over the last three months without a penny of the money being spent on the specialist coaches.

This is a fantastic result for all the young people and well done to the volunteers.
