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.

New queuing calling system in place at TAG on Friday nights. Mainly for use for the radio station. The new system will also be used for other popular activities. Each participant will receive a device (up to 18 devices). When it’s your turn the device will vibrate, light up and beep. It’s hoped that this new system will enable young people to take part in other activities rather than waiting for a particular activity. ... See MoreSee Less
