We're pleased to have supported the Jack Hazeldine Foundation (JHF) who have recently secured a £9,189 award from the North Somerset Community Quartet Partnership via the Quartet Community Foundation.
JHF Project Growth, an outdoor learning programme and series of themed activities to give young service users the opportunity to build self-esteem and resilience in a safe and welcoming space.
The JHF charity was established in 2012 with the mission to inspire young lives through the strength of positive relationships. This project will provide much-needed support for children and young people within North Somerset, including training in personal growth, active lifestyle, environmental action, forest and survival skills, creative showcase, community engagement and much more.
This mentee led community project empowers young people to give something back. Whether they decide to build a bird table for a care home or organise a beach clean, they're given a chance to learn, give back, and to understand their role in society.
Managing Director, Pearl Cross said "we have good connections with our local community and a track record of delivering impactful programmes that help to increase self-confidence, self-esteem and resilience. COVID19 has been a challenge for everybody in the charity sector and a return to face-to-face activities is important for the young people in our programme, but we must offer this in a safe and considered way."- Pearl from the JHF.
Wil added, "I'm thrilled to have worked alongside Pearl in securing this valuable funding. It is evident that all the team at JHF have been working very hard to change the way they deliver services during COVID, and this funding will help facilitate that."
