Future Plans

Our New Building and Our Future

 

Following considerable work with Historic England and other agencies, we have secured unanimous planning permission for our proposed new facility. Our ambitions are shaped by the need to alleviate obesity, social isolation, and mental health
issues in our young people, all of which have increased due to COVID-19.

The new building will transform our charity’s future making a real difference to young people’s lives as we look to the next decade and beyond.

We will be able to deliver our programmes to thousands more children each year, achieving our targets for diversity and inclusion.

We will have a wonderful indoor sports hall so we can deliver our education programmes all year round regardless of the weather.

There will be new toilets and changing facilities suitable for our disabled children and volunteers.

The new pavilion will provide a modern learning space so that we can expand our education offer to more children and community groups.

It will truly be a facility to be proud of and one that we will be able to invite the community to share.

To make our plans a reality, we are now working hard to raise the necessary funds to begin building. If you’d like to help us or require further information please contact:
