Location

Situation

Torbay has two of the most deprived wards in the country and one of the highest factors of teenage pregnancy. There is a gap in constructive activities for this age group during holiday periods, so this project provides an affordable and relevant childcare option for teenagers with relevant experiences to better inform their educational and social choices that will impact their futures. The workshops promote inclusion for young people with disabilities.

Solution

It will provide a stimulating choice of vocational taster workshops over the summer holiday helping to inform future career choice and to better prepare young people for healthy independent living developing skills such as cooking, animal care, hair and beauty care. It provides the chance to develop new friendships and integration across able and disabled people. Funding will enable everyone to access the workshops regardless of disadvantage.
