VOLUNTEERING
AND COMMUNITY
BENEFIT

Our work is community focused – we deliver at grassroots level, and we tackle local issues. We want our participants to feel safe and welcome in the places that they live, and to feel invested in making their communities better for all who live there. It’s important for us that volunteering becomes a normal activity for all our participants – most of whom are not from traditional ‘volunteer’ backgrounds. A diverse group of volunteers with a huge range of skills and experiences is better for everyone!


TACKLING ISSUES IN THE COMMUNITY

TACKLING ISSUES IN THE COMMUNITY

We asked our participants at our two Wicketz residential festivals about what concerns them locally in a special workshop. They identified a range of issues, shown here in these pie charts.

Both boys’ and girls’ groups worked through some of the issues they raised, discussing their causes and the effects they had on their communities, as well as solutions.


We have run OVER 100 WORKSHOPS this year all over the country, covering topics such as CYBER BULLYING, CULTURAL IDENTITY, PERSONAL ASPIRATIONS, CRIME AVOIDANCE, HEALTHY EATING and CHALLENGING STEREOTYPES. We want to give young people the tools they need to succeed in a difficult environment.
