Crawley Community Youth Service
Gatwick Foundation Fund - £4,000
William Reed Fun - £1,000
"CCYS is the main youth service provider in Crawley, delivering 10 sessions a week to over 300 young people in Crawley. We know young people can be role models in their community, so we provide a safe space and opportunities to enable YP to raise their aspirations and improve wellbeing.
CCYS will provide a yearlong cookery project at Dormans. It will allow us to hire a staff member to prepare for and run a weekly cookery session, buy cookery equipment, weekly ingredients and prepare take-home resources. The goal is to get more young people interested in cooking, and to encourage them to work together to help plan and deliver a community meal each term. While we will be teaching new cookery skills, the focus of this project is about creating interest in cooking by working in a team towards a bigger goal."
