This year's Purbeck Pledge will be taking place during the month of May with the tag line 'Access what's out there
' - so here is what PYCF puts "out there"!
Purbeck Youth and Community Foundation run open access youth clubs in Wareham Wool and Corfe with a range of activities in a safe place that support feeling healthy physically and mentally. Our offer includes art, yoga, singing and recording, football, table tennis, boxercise, pool, sumo wrestling, Duke of Edinburgh awards, volunteer training, chilling with friends in a safe place , access to a Dorset MIND counsellor, qualified youth workers, trips out and residentials.
Rooms and spaces to hire.
We support some schools mentoring pupils and also run a walk and talk mentoring project with some schools promoting good wellbeing.
We also run a Not so Youth group for over 50s each Thursday morning in term time 10-12 with opportunity to use any equipment or sit and chat.
We run a monthly fun session for under 10's parents/carers stay and catch up over tea of coffee while the children play.
We work with many partners to provide support and opportunities.
The Purbeck Gateway club meets here each week providing social activities for adults with a learning disability.
We are always looking for volunteers to join our friendly group help with our fundraising having fun and supporting young people.
