Last year, the EXPECT Summer programme rolled out with a huge bang! Over the course of 6 weeks, almost 11,000 attendees enjoyed a range of activities organised by EXPECT Youth, with partners such as DARTS, Active Fusion, EPIC, DCLT, Club Doncaster Foundation and Flying Futures.
Thousands of young people facing disadvantage had the chance to take part in FREE activities such as Zorbing, First Aid Training, Hair & Beauty, Castle Club, Dance and Multi Sports…the list goes on! With help from Fareshare, the Schools Catering Team and Moorends Miners Welfare, the programme was able to prepare and provide free healthy meals for children and young people at sessions. The good news is, the programme will return this summer 2019!
As a result of last years programme, more children and young people have the opportunity to get involved in extra-curricular activities too, with 40 activities delivered by 20 specialist organisations tthrough the Essential Skills Programme, which is available for 5-18 year olds.
