The Kingsmoor Park Junior Youth Project is run by Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing from the Moorcroft Community Centre in Woking. It is supported by Woking Borough Youth Offer and offers positive activities and one to one support for young people with issues around anti-social behaviour. During lockdown, the Youth Project has increased its detached youth work to maintain contact with the young people.
The award from the HSYA has enabled the youth workers to maintain contact with the young people from the Junior Youth Project throughout the COVID 19 lockdown period and to provide wellbeing activities. The Project has engaged with whole families at home by providing Wellbeing Art packs, flower and vegetable seeds, and growing materials. Encouraged by the youth workers they have nurtured these seeds at home, as well as entering the sunflower growing competition. Some of the plants are now being transferred to the Moorcroft community flower beds, with the young people taking responsibility for watering them.
The young people have had someone to talk to on a weekly basis and communication has also increased with parents of the young people who participate in the project, enabling them to talk about issues they are having throughout the lockdown period.
