* Galafield Community Centre

Mission Statement

Help end isolation by supporting the Community Cafe

                                               

Action for Children is a national charity that supports and speaks out on behalf of the most vulnerable and neglected children and young people in the heart of communities throughout the UK.  In Newcastle we run the Galafield Community Hub and Cafe, In the Outer West of the City.

The Galafield Community Hub is a thriving centre serving the whole community. We have sports and leisure activities; support groups; dance; new babies sessions and adult learning. Alongside this we have specialist support when needed such as benefits advice, family support and a Foodbank. The Community Cafe is a new venture at the heart of the centre. This is a welcoming and friendly place for people to drop in and relax. We are providing the space for people to re-connect and end the isolation that COVID has imposed.

Our values

Passion - we are driven by our desire to help children and young people overcome injustice and disadvantage

Equality - we believe all children and young people have equal worth and equal rights

Hope - we believe in a child or young person's potential, no matter what they have experienced or what they have done

* Staffordshire Community Support

Our Vision

Staffordshire Community Support has been providing short break services throughout Staffordshire for almost 20 years enabling over 1000 young people to enjoy positive experiences away from home.  Through developing effective relationships we have developed a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the issues parents/carers face and our mission is to work collaboratively to support children and young people accessing our services.

We are commissioned by Staffordshire County Council through the Aiming High programme to support young people with SEND needs living in Staffordshire.  We currently provide a 1:1 support service to work with a child or young person towards a specific target or outcome and a range of groups throughout the county.

Lifeskills and Independence is the provision of 1:1 support to children and young people with SEND, to enable them to attend existing groups and activities, independently of their parents and carers, to help them progress and achieve their potential in areas which we have agreed with young people and families.

 

The service is for children and young people aged 11-25 and they are eligible to access up to 56 hours support 14 x 4 hour sessions (8 hours per month) and we have been working towards some of the following outcomes with the young people:-

  • Independent travel training
  • self-care/dressing/mealtimes,
  • getting out of the house to reduce isolation  
  • improve social skills and socialise with friends,
  • explore volunteering opportunities
  • learn how to budget and shop independently
  • gain confidence to access your local leisure centre

    and start a new sport or learn a new skill.

Our groups are for children and young people aged 0-18 years and we run regular swimming groups, sensory groups, funday groups, school holiday activities and groups for teenagers.
