Summer 2020

About

We have received a community grant from the government to enable us to provide a selection of activities over the summer holidays. Most of these activities will be held at The Gathering, though some may also be held outdoors. The activities will be kept informal and fun, but due to Covid-19 a structure and a number of measures will be in place to enable us run these activities safely. Due to social-distancing measures, spaces for these activities will be limited, and young person will need to be pre-book onto an activity in advance.

Based on feedback from the young people and their parents/guardians, we are aware in this time that there is a specific need for educational and mental health support. There is also a general desire from the young people to use this time in a positive way. We aim to meet these needs and desires by putting on a wide-range of different activities which will include:

> Outdoor Activities

> Music Lessons

> Extra Maths

> Extra English

> GCSE Support

> Practical Life Skills

> Art & Craft

> Cookery

Each activity will be run in small groups. The Gathering will be complying with government guidelines and the young people will be expected to follow the Covid-19 risk assessment for the premise. There will be paid tutors helping with the educational needs and the music lessons.
