This service intends to empower local disadvantaged young people that are not accessing mainstream youth provisions and are socially excluded or at risk of social exclusion by providing meaningful social, cultural, educational and sports activities. The aims of the service are;

  • Empower and support disadvantaged Somali young people and other ethnic minorities who are at risk of underachievement or exclusion
  • Promote and encourage learning and achievement of Somali children and young people in and beyond schools
  • Presenting young people in appeal panels regarding admission and exclusion procedures
  • Study and Homework Club on Saturdays and Sundays for secondary school children who are underachieving*
  • Providing support and guidance to Somali families and their children suffering isolation or domestic violence
  • Young people’s newsletter, produced quarterly*
  • Organise trips, social and cultural activities for young people*
  • Assist in policies development and addressing the disadvantage
  • Social inclusion of the Somali young people

*Service is currently suspended due to lack of funding. This has enabled us to build a track record for providing a service that are responsive to the Somali young people’s specific needs and building a good working relationship with other youth provisions to maximise the benefit of disadvantaged young people.
