Over the last few months, Young Bristol have been offering sessions, specifically for Looked After Children!
At BS14 Stockwood Youth Club, we have delivered 8 sessions of Looked After Children Positive Changes. Young people have been engaging in a club setting, taking part in sports, arts and discussion activities.
As a part of our sporting offer, young people have taken part in weekly exercise sessions. The group have been able to utilise our sports hall and equipment in order to get that essential exercise!
Both our creative and discussion activities offered young people to engage in key parts of our Positive Changes Programmes. Activities included discussion around strengths and weakness, role models and problem solving workshops. Young people were also able to create clay figures, graffiti art, and decorative masks. These activities all contribute to help young people make informed positive choices.
Some of our young people’s foster carers kindly left us some feedback, discussing how they have found our Looked After Children session so far.
Most of our looked after young people never get the opportunity to join clubs due to triggers and trauma, which effects their behaviour. It has been lovely to see our young people socialising, playing together and building forever friends.”
My 3 young people really enjoy being part of an inclusive youth club, meeting with their peers, building new friendships and learning new skills.”
We would like to thank Children In Need for funding the Positive Changes Programme, ran with the Looked After Children group.
We would also like to thank The Cause Bristol for helping us deliver Young Bristol’s Positive Changes Programme. It is great to work with partners to help support young people.
