discovery days Project
This project is also known as the 16+ project in our Peterborough branch.
The discovery days project is for all young people leaving care.
The objective of the projects are to provide opportunities to engage in social activities, training and volunteering.

Thanks to funding from the Police, Fire and Crime commissioner we launched two additional projects which fall under the umbrella of the Discovery Days project. Our 'Empowering Young Males & Females' project was an 8 week project exploring topics related to young people. Examples of this included mental health, domestic abuse, healthy relationships and awareness of crime such as gangs.
The gardening project is part of the 'Wellbeing Wednesday's' tasks within 'Discovery Days'. It is aimed at young people who are not in education, employment or training (NEET). The project can be used as work experience by the young people, and provides the young people a safe space to learn and grow.
These donors are essential and without their contributions we wouldn't be able to provide resources where needed.
