Recipient Org: Description Hamdon Youth Group aims to provide a safe and welcoming environment for young people to attend. To give them different interests and activities to fulfil and to occupy and expand their minds, through discussions and challenges. On occasions we take them to places of interest and provide outside activities when the weather permits. We also provide a range of different speakers from time to time to come and talk to the young people to answers questions about future plans and how making different choices can affect their life in different ways. This includes access to Martock Job Club, which among other things, will help the young people with C.V writing, interview skills and techniques and other relevant information that they require. We employ a professional youth worker who leads activities and discussions. Among our aims is to reduce the impact of anti-social behaviour in the are, in this we have been particularly successful, working closely with the local police force, when appropriate. Statistics show a marked drop in incidents of anti-social behaviour by young people since our inception. By keeping this youth group running we can carry on with the improvement of anti-social behaviour, helping young people to fulfil their goals in life and to steer them on to the path of success in their life outside of school, by being there for them to talk to, to answer any queries they may have, to make them feel comfortable with who they are. We aim to help keep the young people focused and be able to talk to us about anything they need to.
