Building a better Bootle - Together

Ykids and Venus have had the privilege of working in Bootle for over 10 years; delivering projects, services and activities for children, young people, families and the wider community.  Together, our two charities are proposing to take on the currently closed Orrell Library building and use it as a venue to provide more services and activities in the local community.

 

We want to collect your opinions and feedback to see if this is something that you need and want to see in your community.  Your opinion matters to us.


Venus Team Day!

Today our Centre is closed while we have a Team Day.  We have team days every month to catch up on policy reviews, undertake any activities or reviews that we need to do.  We have tried to update our IT systems this morning because we're in the process of implementing a new computer case management system and trying to be more efficient!  I have to admit I'm struggling a bit because I'm not computer-y but I'm perservering!  So, if you have any suggestions or you're interested in creating a video or taking pictures or anything like that for our social media then get involved!


Catching up

Hello!

Just wanted to catch up and tell you about a few things we've been up to recently.  Clare has been using our Smiley Bus from the Morgan Foundation to take families on day trips through the Easter Holidays, last week a trip to the Safari Park went very well, this week we're looking forward to some splashy fun at Splash World in Southport!  Dawn, one of our social work students, is looking forward to donning her cozzi and getting her swim on!


Sefton Care Leavers' Centre Team Update

Sefton Care Leaver's Centre Team have had a change of staff recently, our colleague Alan Cunningham has left the team for pastures new and we wish him the very best of luck in his future endeavours, we hope he will stay in touch!  We'd like to take this opportunity to welcome our new Activity Worker to the Team, we're thrilled that David Fairclough has joined our Team and look forward to working with him.  David has lots of skills, experience and enthusiasm to bring to the team and we are really happy to have him onboard!


A note about our Funding

Whilst our website is under construction and review, we are aware that it does not provide details or acknowledgment of our Funders.  We would not wish any of those who support our work to feel unrecognised, valued and appreciated, therefore, we'd like to take this opportunity to say a big THANK YOU from Venus (in no particular order) to...

  • Big Lottery
  • The Morgan Foundation
  • Sefton Metropolitan Borough Council
  • South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group
  • Scottish Power Energy People Trust
  • Hugh Baird College
