Swanley Youth Hub - West Kent 'Young Adventurers' (Referral Only)


West Kent runs weekly clubs for children aged eight to twelve in six areas across the District. The project is funded by Children in Need and Sevenoaks District Council and supported by local town and parish councils, and Kent County Council.

Young Adventurers provides a low cost recreational and educational activity for children and encourages team work, communication skills, self-confidence and friendship. Activities are currently run in Swanley, Sevenoaks, Edenbridge, New Ash Green, Dunton Green and West Kingsdown.

 

 The project aims to support children aged eight to twelve who would benefit from additional recreational activities outside the home and school environment.

All children must be registered with the project and attend on a weekly basis. The clubs do not operate “drop in” activities and are not ‘youth clubs’ and as such, any child that does not attend for more than four sessions out of six in any one will have their space made available for another child. We do this for several reasons:

  • To ensure that children on our waiting lists get a chance to attend the clubs
  • To ensure that the group dynamics of the clubs are not in constant change
  • To ensure that all children that attend benefit from the full programme of activities


These projects have been very successful in supporting the children. There are several case studies on the West Kent website, www.westkent.org
