Celebrating children and young people in Pillgwenlly

21st March 2022

I was delighted to be invited to a party for all the children and young people of the KidCare4U Saturday club.

The club receives funding from my office and plugs a gap in service provision in the local area, offering children from all communities the opportunity to have fun, develop and grow.

As well as activities that encourage young people to keep healthy, build their confidence and make friends, the club also provides extra education support for those who need it. Staff and volunteers are drawn from the local area which helps to build trust and cohesion within the community.

Not only is this project keeping young people off the streets and giving them something positive to do, the wider support offered to the young people and their families will have long term benefits for their future.
