Impact Stories – Funding for Youth Projects

Read our latest report on the funding for the Youth Concern project in Aylesbury…

Grant provided : £6000

We asked the Youth Concern community project to explain how the grant they received from the Heart of Bucks KOP-Hill Climb fund has supported their work. We’ll let them explain in their own words:

“Your funding contributed to the salary of 2 part time women’s workers up until November 2016. This enabled us to provide a bespoke service to vulnerable young women within our Drop-in Centre, and also as an outreach service at Aylesbury College.

Your grant has enabled vulnerable young people to get the support they need, from another woman, when they need it.
It has provided them with a listening ear, emotional support as well as practical support to tackle a number of issues including substance misuse, domestic violence, homelessness, mental health, relationship breakdown, sexual and physical health, poverty, education, employment and training.”

Unexpected developments

“We found that we were able to offer an outreach service to Aylesbury College students – their number of safeguarding incidents, as well as  the number of students with additional needs, had risen beyond their capacity, and we were asked to support them. This funding helped us do that.

We also found that our second part time women’s worker brought with her additional skills in art and design. This was an unexpected bonus and we were able to use her skills and experience directly with the client group, as well as when she was promoting the outreach service at the College.”
