  • Are working with 3 schools

  • Provide Work experience for up to 12 young people

  • Provide Young leadership training 

 

We have a number of different groups that we run throughout the week take a look at them below.

We provide mentoring, weekly 'drop-ins' and a young leaders' programme each offering the opportunity to build healthy relationships in the community, learn basic life skills, feel valued and respected, grow in self-confidence and self-esteem. This positive environment includes activities such as PS4, table tennis, pool, cooking and craft activities etc for them to engage in and space to just sit and chat. An important part of our annual calendar are our residential trips to Wales and Corf Camp. 

YOUNG LEADERS' PROGRAMME

We provide a young leaders' programme, encouraging young people to volunteer within the project and community whilst undertaking a Passport 4 Independence Course Programme, which gives them a nationally recognised qualification via Gateway Qualifications. 

RESIDENTIALS

SWAY provides two main residential trips over the year. We have our annual trip to Wales, where we do activities such as climbing a mountain, gorge walking, rock climbing, kayaking, etc. We also offer an island residential at Corf Camp, Shalfleet for young people and their families. These give opportunities for young people to discover new abilities, hidden talents and overcome potential fears and weaknesses whilst experiencing communal living.
