WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH OUR COMMUNITY TO DELIVER QUALITY SERVICES
Providing a range of activities and services, ranging from youth clubs to Play Rangers, events to music, sport or forest school sessions, and a whole heap more, the Youth Service, working from our dedicated building ‘No 95’, offers sessions six days each week covering the whole of Woughton.
The team are passionate about seeing local young people develop their skills and raise their aspirations.
Our approach is one of partnerships: with young people themselves, other organisations, with families, guardians, and other professionals. We work with and for our community, involving young people in choices that matter. Our aims are:
• To ensure young people have a voice
• To raise aspirations and improve skills
• To embrace and support diversity and inclusion
• To continually review, respond and improve our offer
The WCC Youth Service aims to offer support to all young people who need it, wherever in the parish the live, work or are educated. Our work, offering support using the most appropriate approaches to young people, no matter where on parish they live, helps reduce divisions across the piece and the territorialism that can lead to difficulties. Encouraging interaction and reducing community tensions are at the heart of our work.
Inclusive and safe
We are led by the needs of our community and respond by focusing on the strengths of individuals and the communities within parish – we know that Woughton is hugely diverse, and we aim to ensure a welcoming, inclusive approach to all our projects, taking a zero-tolerance approach to discriminatory language and actions. This means that when children and young people attend our services, they know that they are safe, supported, and able to express themselves..
