Connected Kids - After-school Club

Kids Club at High Borrens

During 2019-20 we ran our Connected Kids Club every week both during term time and in school holidays. We provided a range of fun activities including homework help, computing and gaming. arts and crafts, sports and trips. In total we supported over 146 children to take part in over 10,000 hours of activity.

A highlight of the year was their summer trip to High Borrens in the Lake District where they tried lots of outdoor activities including canoeing, caving and coasteering. The children worked all year to fund raise for the trip and 24 children were able to attend.

Specialist Alcohol Support

Through our P.A.U.S.E Project we offer support for those who are affected by their problematic alcohol use but are not yet ready to access formal medical treatment. Through a combination of one-to-one support for their complex issues and group work, people are given a stepping stone towards treatment and abstinence. They agree an alcohol reduction plan and are given counselling to manage their addiction and other issues which are affecting them. We assess their capacity as part of their initial induction and review progress regularly to determine impact of the work.
