Recipient Org: Description Young People Frome (YPF) was created following the Frome Town Mayor’s Youth Initiative in 1988 and is now a registered charity. Much of the work we do is in partnership with other local organisations, who work with us to help deliver our projects. Our funding comes from a range of both local and national charities. These have included Frome Town Council, Frome Community Learning Partnership, Aster Communities, the Somerset Community Foundation, Frome Rotary, Somerset Crime Beat, Percy Billon, Frome Lottery, Frome Development Community Interest Company, Comic Relief, The Big Lottery, Henry Hoare and many more. Young People Frome currently employs a part-time coordinator who is a qualified Youth & Community worker with 30 years experience of work with young people in all areas of youth work, project management and senior management including work in extended schools. She is also a Child protection officer trained and has the qualification to train others in child protection. We also employ other p/t staff to help deliver our projects as and when required . Young People Frome supports voluntary and statutory agencies, to promote youth work and enable young people to have a voice & take part in youth activities. We also offer support and expertise in setting up youth clubs. We have helped the Pod Youth club (for young people with additional needs/disabilities) to get off the ground. We also publicise the opportunities that are available to young people via the Frome Active website at and currently produce a school holiday information bulletin bringing together information about all the local activities on offer to children and young people. Young People Frome was involved in setting up the Frome Foyer Project for homeless young people, Frome Festival and the Christmas Extravaganza as well as consulting with young people and designing the play equipment in Mary Bailey playing fields. We were also involved in the development of skateboard parks in the town, Saturday Sport at the leisure centre, promoting the Duke of Edinburgh Award, founding Music Mayhem (live music events for young people) and developing and building a Youth Café at Routes (Mendip YMCA’s one stop shop for homeless and unemployed young people).. Young People Frome also runs projects and activities that tackle youth unemployment including supporting young people in setting up their own social enterprises. In 2013 we worked with young people to run a series of markets which gave young people an opportunity to sell products that they had made, running alongside this was a mentoring program supported by The Frome Chamber of commerce. Last year we worked with Aster Communities & Frome College to deliver a social enterprise qualification to a group of young people. . . Last year we also ran the Frome Children’s Festival .The festival was a great success, with over a thousand visitors. The event brought together the wealth of community groups in Frome to put on a creative, active and imaginative festival. The ethos behind the festival events is to be local, accessible and inclusive. Last year we ran a sports expo and voucher scheme for disadvantaged young people and we would like to build on this successful work.
