The Children's Society in Cheshire
Programme manager: Barbara McDade
The Children's Society team in Cheshire works with teenagers and uses sport and leisure activities to promote social inclusion, increase young people's confidence and self-esteem and thereby reduce the likelihood that young people will become involved in crime or anti-social behaviour.
Based in offices in Northwich The Children's Society in Cheshire works with a targeted group of young people aged between 13 and 17 years who are referred to the programme by schools, police, youth offending service, community safety wardens and children's services.
We offer young people weekly football sessions in Northwich and Winsford, a range of exciting school holiday activities, group meetings where concerns such as healthy living are discussed and individual help with problems. We provide a safe space with specialist staff that can support young people to make the best of their challenges and opportunities.
