NEW from Sussex Clubs for Young People
We have been working behind the scenes to keep in touch with the young people in Sussex, and have put together a schedule of weekly virtual youth groups in the Horsham District. Having already held two sessions we will be connecting with young people throughout this week and plan to open this up to more areas soon. All virtual youth groups are 4pm to 6pm.
- Monday’s – Singleton Youth Group – Young Leaders
- Tuesday’s – Upper Beeding – for young people in school years 7, 8 and 9, Steyning and Billingshurst – for young people in school year 7+
- Thursday’s – Steyning – for young people in school years 7+, Upper Beeding and Pulborough – all school years
If you would like to take part in any of the virtual youth groups above, then please email firstname.lastname@example.org and state which group you would like to take part in. Jo will send out an online membership form for you and your parent/carer to complete and then once this is received a Zoom link will be sent to enable you to join in with the session on a mobile, tablet, laptop or computer.
If a young person wants to talk to a youth worker on a one to one basis, this can be arranged through teams, please email email@example.com and we will send out a Teams link which can be delivered on a mobile, tablet laptop or computer, this will provide you a safe space to talk to a professional youth worker in a safe and secure manner.
All sessions are held with professional youth workers online at all times and all participants must agree with the group rules which include no swearing, no bullying and any others that the group would like and safeguarding concerns will be reported in line with our policies which are available on our webpage www.sussexcyp.org.uk.
