Ballymena & Little Steps Sure Start
Ballymena & Little Steps Antrim SureStart provides a range of services to both children from pre-birth up to four years, and their families.
Services consist of both individual and group support and operate from two centres , covering eight identified electoral wards within Ballymena. The project comprises a multi-agency and multi-disciplinary team and works in close partnership with a range of statutory, voluntary and community groups, to provide a needs led approach to the delivery of services in the area.
Services cover three main themes which are:
- Family Support
- Play and Early Learning
- Specialised Health Support.
All our services are FREE! Our Projects play an essential role on giving children and families the early support they need.
Bucks Activity Project
Bucks Activity Project
Providing short breaks for disabled children and young people aged 0-19
Bucks Activity Project provides community short breaks to children and young people aged 0-19 with disabilities and additional learning needs across Buckinghamshire. We currently have around 300 children registered with the service and have been running for over 20 years.
Short Breaks have positive benefits for both children and young people with disabilities and their parents and carers. They give children and young people time away from their family so they can develop independence, learn new skills, make friends, and reduce loneliness whilst giving parents and carers a break from their caring responsibilities and providing time to spend with other children in the family.
At the moment we are looking for volunteers to help us run our project. We need people who are enthusiastic, fun-loving and pro-active to help out in our sessions with the children, and we also need organised and focused people to help us in the office with our admin tasks.
Dorset Nightstop provides safe, secure emergency accommodation for young people aged 16-25 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
Young people are welcomed into the home of a fully trained volunteer host. Placements are on a one night at a time basis, usually for a maximum of three nights.
As a young person accessing Nightstop you can expect:
- a safe and secure bed for the night in your own room
- an evening meal and breakfast
- washing facilities
- a listening ear, if you need one, or head space if you prefer
- a friendly and free service
- breathing space to allow you to get any support you need and move towards finding more permanent accommodation
Nightstop aims to keep young people in a safe and friendly home environment, while allowing agencies to look at long-term solutions to their homelessness.
