A Helping Hand

“I have been running ReActive club for over ten years, starting out as a parent concerned that young people in South Wigston had nowhere to go and nothing to do. Four years ago a colleague suggested that I affiliate with Young Leicestershire as I was running the club by myself and becoming overwhelmed with production of policies and procedures, recruitment, insurances, training, etc.
The staff at Young Leicestershire have been important in helping me to keep the club running efficiently. They have assisted me in gaining funding to pay for youth work staff and additional activities, and are always on the end of the phone or email if I need any advice or support or to chat about how we are doing.
The cost of affiliation is not a problem as it can be built into funding bids which YL help me to write, and is very little in terms of what we get back in return. I would recommend anyone who is running a community, youth or activity group to affiliate to Young Leicestershire group for the support.”
