A major donation from the Denbury Charitable Fund saw the charity able to purchase a new van to act as a mobile youth centre. The motorised youth centre has been a huge success, with over 300 young people taking advantage of its services in its first year of operations. As a transportable youth club, it’s highly versatile, even managing to transform some locations into a football pitch using the vehicle’s headlights.
Rebecca Hodnett, Lead Youth Worker for Porch Project: “Children and young adults are each on their own journey, and we are there to help them stay on the right path. Being mobile, the van gives us the chance to reach more young people, and remove some of the barriers that might otherwise prevent them from accessing our services. It’s also lovely to give youngsters a place to relax with friends and enjoy some downtime.”
