Set up in 2011 by Paul Oxberry to develop and deliver outdoor educational and adventurous activities in the East Kent area. In 2012 we were part of a consortium that successfully bid for and won a three year contract from Kent County Council to provide youth activities in Faversham and we are part of the new Swale youth consortium that will be delivering youth activities for the next five years in Swale. At present we are running regular weekly Youth Clubs in Faversham on Friday evenings for young people of secondary school age, monthly outdoor learning days for home educated children, a project called Good To Be Me in the Ashford area on Tuesdays and an alternative curriculum project on Wednesday and Thursday in Swale.
We work with many local schools, scout and guide groups, home educated children, children in care, general youth groups, NEET groups and adults. As part of our social payback we sponsor the Children in Care awards each year, providing activities and staff for free.
