Climb 4 Ltd Grimsby
Climb 4 Ltd is a not for profit social enterprise who deliver therapeutic arts activities in North East Lincolnshire.
They deliverd a 12 week programme within Grimsby's East Marsh. The area was chosen because a large majority of those living there have been disadvantaged through exclusion from mainstream activities. This is due to homelessness, special educational needs, behavioural or psychological issues, distress, anti-social behaviour, low incomes and shortage of opportunities.
The 12 week programme involved Street dance, Arts and Crafts, confidence/self-esteem and teambuilding activities. Topics such as healthy relationships, bullying, Diversity and Equality, communication, drug and alcohol misuse and internet safety were explored.The toplics were used to improve participants understanding of respect and tolerance to others, to become more self-aware and gain an insight into their own emotions and those of others.
The Tribune Trust is pleased to support Climb 4 Ltd to run the second phase of their RESPECT programme. This involves running a second 12 week programme and then building a network from the participants from both of the 12 week programmes. The RESPECT Young People’s Network will assist in developing the programme further, rolling it out to other areas and enrolling more members. The focus of their work will be on building stronger community cohesion and a safer community. Members of the delivery team will include RESPECT Network mentors (young people from previous cohorts).
Climb 4 intend to support participants on the programme by offering them volunteer opportunities. They will also provide peer support training and leadership roles for those interested in their 4 U By U Network.
