1 in 4 children live in poverty in the Valleys. Young people live with a legacy of unemployment; they are failing and being failed by the education system. Some have poor literacy & numeracy, suffer from low-self esteem and poor aspirations. Many live in families struggling to survive economically and emotionally. Some are single parent or stepfamilies where drugs & alcohol, mental health problems or domestic violence are all too common. It’s a crippling downward spiral, which destroys any hope of a positive fulfilling life for themselves and their children.
This remarkable project will engage ‘hard to reach’ young people and vulnerable adults who will benefit from it, by helping to build their own eco-residential centre using natural, locally sourced materials. Once completed, we can extend the benefits of Residential sessions at Little Bryn Gwyn providing diverse volunteering & training opportunities for young people; respite for families facing obstacles helping them gain control of their lives and giving children & families happy memories.
By joining the Big Give, you can become part of this important project.
All donations given in the seven days, midday 28th November to midday 5th December, will be matched pound for pound by the Dulverton Trust.
