Child Dynamix , Hull
Child Dynamix is a social enterprise and registered charity founded in 2005. Their work with children, young people and families began in 2001 when they developed a nursery on the Preston Road Estate in East Hull. Their focus was on social regeneration in areas of deprivation in East Hull, and while they continue to provide services in this area, they now also work across the Humber sub-region.
From their original childcare provision, they have developed a wide range of projects, facilities and services, including youth clubs, the Little Stars Children’s Centre, play work, parent peer mentoring, charity shops and sports activities.
The Tribune Trust is supporting Child Dynamix to provide a weekly sports session at the Arch Bishop Sentamu Academy, Preston Road, Hull. The session will be football based, as it is a hugely popular sport in the area. Other sports will be included in the project if the group suggests it. The sessions will be aimed at young people aged 12-18years from the local area.
The local area has many problems with antisocial behaviour. The Tribune Trust is therefore very pleased to be able to provide a grant which will help to deter and reduce antisocial behaviour in the local area and at the same time help young people to improve their fitness and wellbeing. They will also have the opportunity to learn new skills and be able to access volunteering, training, advice on Further Education and other educational opportunities.
