Young people can go to Y.E.L.L


Published by Anonymous for Circle in Housing and also in Care and Support, Education

Young Wherry Housing Association residents living in the Broadland District Council area are invited to an Open Day on Tuesday 19th February to re-launch the Y.E.L.L¹ project for 2013.

Y.E.L.L aims to give young people aged 11-18 the opportunity to make new friends and have fun. It will also offer participants opportunities to gain new qualifications and develop their personal and employment skills.²

The Open Day includes activities such as snow-tubing and wall climbing.

Sue Stavers, Managing Director, Wherry Housing Association, said:

“Y.E.L.L is about opening up interesting opportunities for young people in the area. We hope they’ll come along to our Open Day to see what it’s all about. Groups like Y.E.L.L give young people something positive to do, benefiting them and the wider community too.”

It is hoped that Y.E.L.L will develop a board of young people to help shape Wherry’s services.

Those wishing to attend the Open Day should contact Wherry’s Resident Involvement Team. ³
