The Jack Petchey Foundation Trustees have upgraded TAG Youth Club for Disabled Young People from their silver award programme to their gold programme.

Sir Jack Petchey CBE founded the Jack Petchey Foundation in 1999 to recognise the positive contributions young people make to society and assist them in achieving their potential.  The Foundation support programmes and projects that benefit young people aged 11-25 in London and Essex and have invested over £110 million in such schemes. 

Their major programme, the Achievement Awards is a peer recognition scheme operating in grass roots youth clubs, youth organisations, secondary schools and uniformed organisations.  The young award winners choose how best to spend their £250 award money to the benefit of their club or school – that is over £3 million being invested in youth activity every year!

TAG will now be able to increase the amount of awards we are currently awarding to children and young people from two per term to three per term, with nine awards in total over the year.

Huge its been an amazing resource for the community allowing Christopher to enjoy on a Friday evening time with like minded young people with a cross spectrum of needs to socialise and participate in activities that are usually exclusively excluded from taking part in. The dynamic understanding of the staff and activities are reflected in catering for the needs of the moderate to complex needs. Something that mainstream clubs cannot manage. In short Tag is a breath of fresh air in a foggy atmosphere where resources are being cut cut cut, Tag Youth club allows our sons and daughters to have opportunity to experience, express and be themselves in a safe understanding and caring environment Well done Tag

It is an amazing club they do everything I don't how they think of all the different things they the people that run the club are fantastic please an award love Joyce xxxx
