Youth Provision

We offer a wide range of activities and events to support families and young people to get involved.

Stockport Homes’ Youth Engagement Officer delivers sessions in schools and the community to encourage young people to make positive choices and develop key life skills.

  • Fabulous Foundations Holiday Club

    Fabulous Foundations holiday club has worked in partnership with All Saints Primary School in Heaton Norris and Westmorland Primary School in Brinnington to deliver an innovative programme of activities in the school holidays. The programme sets out to inspire 30 children by building their self-esteem, self-confidence and academic attainment, supporting Borough priorities around reducing educational inequalities and equipping children to transition successfully between primary and secondary school.

    Outcomes have been overwhelmingly positive. 100% of parents agreed the club had a positive impact on their finances helping them sustain work in the holidays in an affordable way. 100% said it had a positive impact on their child’s happiness, self-confidence, feelings about school, trying new activities and social skills.

  • Hungry 4 Fun

    We worked in partnership with the two local Start Well Centres to deliver a series of six fun and engaging sessions for families with children aged 0 to 11 in Adswood/Bridgehall and Brinnington. The six day programme offered structured play and learning activities and included a healthy meal for all the family. The Holiday Kitchen is a fun and interactive way to address poverty related inequality experienced by some of the most vulnerable and marginalised families in Stockport.

    Parents said that Hungry 4 Fun had helped their family have fun together, reduced them feeling stressed about what to do with the children, helped them financially, and helped their children eat regular meals.

    This summer Hungry 4 Fun has gone virtual, offering you lots of fun interactive sessions, including crafts, books and recipes for you to do from the comfort of your own home. 

     

  • Mental Toughness

    Mental Toughness is used as a measure of mind-set and to enable change in mind-set through interactive sessions for young people in schools. Mental Toughness looks at the way an individual thinks, which is a key driver in the development of behaviour and attributes.  It has four key elements:

    • Control – Life Control (I believe I can do it) and Emotional Control (I can manage my emotions and the emotions of others)
    • Commitment – Goal Setting (Setting goals and I like working towards them) and Achieving (I will do what it takes to keep my promises and achieve my goals)
    • Challenge – Risk Taking (I will push myself and I am driven to succeed) and Learning from Experiences (Even set backs are opportunities for learning)
    • Confidence – In ability (I believe I have the ability to do or can acquire the ability to do it) and Interpersonal Confidence (I can influence others and stand own ground if needed)
