West View Project (WVP) seeks to improve the lives and lifestyle choices of disadvantaged children in Hartlepool.
It offers a safe space in the community, holding youth clubs up to five nights per week as well as regular outdoors activities and summer play schemes.
It works with families, promoting healthy emotional and mental resilience, the development of the family and strengthening the bonds between members.
The local community in West View has recently experienced a number of racially aggravated incidents as well as anti-social behaviour problems.
The WVP is working closely with West View Primary School to deliver a programme of activity focussing on risky behaviours and their impact on individuals.
The WVP has requested funding to expand the delivery of their programme. It will be delivered in age appropriate sessions to 5-7 year olds, 8-11s and 12-19-year-olds.
Group work will be delivered over six weeks with 36 sessions in total. The funding will cover refreshments, volunteer expenses and resources for all the sessions.
This project supports the PCC’s objectives of Working Together to Make Cleveland Safer and Securing the Future of our Communities.
