Back To The Celebrating Renfrewshire Homepage
The projects in this area are:
Always included - Always included. - £2000
The main project is a cafe for our young people and adults but we would also love to be able to buy some of these young people a piece of electrical equipment at home whether it be a tv a computer console or even a bike.
Erskine Youth Council - Escape to the outdoors with EYC. - £1997
Erskine youth council want to bring young people together aged 12 - 25 to explore and experience the outdoors. We want to encourage other young people to socialise safely. We would like to provide an experience to remember without the worry of a cost. To do this, we will provide free transport from central pickup points, Covid19 safety packs including masks, hand sanitiser and other goodies. Free refreshments and snacks will also be included. There will be an opportunity to attend 1 of 4 day trips open to all young people in and around Erskine who can signup online.
Lamont Farm Project - Lamont Farm Project. - £2000
Lamont Farm is dedicated to helping and supporting young people from all walks of life, whether it is in just allowing them to come and visit and pet, providing a young person with the chance of joining the team, or providing them with a work experience placement to aid in furthering their education towards their career goals, and it will continue to do so for as long as we still have young people interested.
Renfrewshire Carers Centre Young carers - Young Carers Boys Group. - £1886
Renfrewshire Carers Centre, Young Carers Project, wish to provide a "boys group" to male and non binary Young Carers between 8-18 years in Renfrewshire. Male carers may find it more difficult to ask for help and to balance education, work and caring, particularly if they are the main carer. This group will offer a safe and nurturing place where only male young carers can get a break from caring, be a child first, reduce isolation, reduce the stigma of caring & recognise particular needs of male carers through fun, engaging group activities. We hope improve the mental health and well-being of our male young carers in Renfrewshire. Male young carers give so much time and attention to their loved ones who have an illness, disability, drugs or alcohol misuse or poor mental health. I would like you to recognise and reward their heroic contribution Young carers make in our community!
Renfrew Rocks - Youth Development In Basketball. - £2000
Our project is to focus on coaching basketball amongst the local youth players at all ages brackets. By giving them a pathway to competitive sport, this will promote both physical and mental well being along with giving a sense of purpose and raising self esteem. By having more participation this can aid their own personal development as they continue in life and being involved in team structures from an early age can give valuable life skills.
St Mirren Youth Football Club - Young Football Coach Ambassador Project. - £2000
After initial recruitment and training, the Young Coach Ambassadors will be guided into creating, designing, developing and delivering a Community based coaching programme, run by young people aimed at even younger people. The idea is to help develop the Coaches of the future, to develop the young football players of the future!
Trinity High School Sports Leaders - Enhanced Sports Leaders. - £850
Trinity High School aims to further strengthen the current Sports Leaders programme making sure ALL Students are encouraged to maximise their talents, achieve their potential both inside and outside the classroom and grow as responsible individuals who are able to contribute positively to the full community. Any extra support available would allow us to up skill and educate all the young people allowing them to stand out in these tough economic times and pass on all the knowledge they have gathered in a safe, fun and fully inclusive environment. As a team we aim to deliver over 500 voluntary hours of FREE coaching to the students both in a school and community setting if we are successful in achieving this additional funding.
