Summer 2017 Newsletter

Hello and welcome

As you flick through the pages I’m sure you’ll be able to visualise just how much fun we have had over the past fewmonths. We have continued to enhance our offer by investing in our activities by bringing in outside providers and supplying new and relevant equipment.

Our Junior Club is now fully established and we have welcomed 15 children and young people to this new development in our charity’s history. Our Junior Club (10-15 years) operates on alternate Fridays between 18:00 & 19:30.

Our core Youth Club continues to be successful with our youth workers supporting 77 young people during the term. Our Youth Club (15-25 years) operates weekly between 19:30 & 21:30.

Our journey doesn’t stop there; as mentioned at our annual general meeting we are currently identifying if there is a need for a young adults Club. Please share your thoughts with us.

We have been busy fundraising to provide our members with the opportunity to explore new experiences and find exciting new resources for our young people to enjoy and engage with. Next term we will be taking delivery of a foot pool and a new touch screen karaoke machine. The autumn term will also see the launch of some new projects including TAG Radio, to be broadcast live from Ham Youth Centre and TAG News, a member led newsletter.

Please don’t forget to follow our social media streams to keep up to date with everything that’s going on.

We have been busy looking at the costs of our residential trips. Our trips are always subsidised and have been fortunate to have received additional funding in 2018 and 2019 but long term this cannot guaranteed. We’re pleased that subsidies will continue in 2020, however we are proposing the following new price structure to ensure we can cover the costs to the charity:

£250 per person. For those on low incomes, there will be the opportunity to apply for a additional subsidy. We want as many young people to have the opportunity to come away with us and have an action packed short break.

£250 per person who requires their own PA to attend. There will be no charge for the PA.

£400 per person who require TAG to provide 121 support during trip.

Our aim in 2020 will also be to look at additional funding and take part in fundraising activities to be able to reduce the £400, 121 cost to £250 so there is a one price structure for all.

Tonight 36 young people attended our Chilly Olympics night. We enjoyed snowboarding on our simulator and we took part in some races and did some arts and crafts.

34 young people completed our end of session evaluation with everyone depositing a green disc.
