Helping homeless young people

We are a group of young people situated in Lawrence Weston, Bristol and we are trying to raise money for young homeless people in our area. We are doing a bike relay between the seven of us for a total time of twenty-four hours. This will happen on the 2nd of June 2016. We are doing this to help us build our own personalised hampers filled with food, tolietries and bedding for young homeless people who are moving into supported housing. We hope this will help give them a fresh start to their new lives. We would be highly appreciative if you could make a donation to our project as you will be helping alot of young homeless people around Bristol. We are being supported to do this by youth support workers from Bread Youth Project. If you would like to make a donation you can do so by visiting the below wesbite link (Our crowdfunder) or by popping into Juicy Blitz, 70 Ridingleaze, Avon, Bristol, BS11 0QB. Thank you!

Big Local Funding for Children and Young People - New Grants

£5,000 of Lawrence Weston’s Big Local funding was been set aside to create a children & young people’s grant pot for 0-19 years, managed by members of the Lawrence Weston Youth Forum. This money is to help young people address some of those issues affecting children & young people living in the area. 

 

 

Please find a copy of the poster and an application form enclosed for more information. The closing dates for the next round of grants are 7th Nov, 21st Nov & 5th Dec – however successful applicants have until the end of February 2015 to deliver their projects/use this funding.

 

The Youth Forum have consulted with a wider group of young people aged 11-19 years in order to identify the 3 priority issues for children & young people from Lawrence Weston’s community plan that they will focus on during 2014-15. They are also offering additional grants (including funding for holiday activities) in recognition that this funding is for a wider group of children and young people aged 0-19 years.

 

It’s really important to us that children & young people are involved in this process as much as possible and are encouraged to contribute their ideas for projects and activities where possible.

 

We ask that any applications for children or young people’s projects for those aged 11+ are completed by young people themselves on behalf their group & that staff & volunteers from relevant organisations support them to do this (i.e. we ask that young people aged 11+ complete the post card describing their project ideas on page 4 of the application pack).

Two young people from Juicy Blitz run Bristol Half Marathon to raise fund for Bread

Two young volunteers from Juicy Blitz Youth Involvement Project, alongside 18 other supporters, have accepted the gruelling challenge of running the Bristol Half Marathon to raise funds to support Bread Youth Project.

Juicy Blitz is a young person’s health education and participation project delivered by Bread in Lawrence Weston, Bristol.

When asked why he wanted to run the Bristol Half Marathon Jordon replied “To return a favour and to raise funds to ensure young people can continue to enjoy the great benefits that the project has to offer”

[Jordon Hudd, 17]

As Juicy Blitz project beneficiaries both have had firsthand experience as to the opportunities and support offered for young people to develop their skills, knowledge and confidence.

Paula, one of last year’s 8 shortlisted nominees for Bristol’s Young Inspirer Award, is one of a minority of young people from Lawrence Weston who has overcome significant barriers in her life to go on and study at University. Paula’s commitment and determination to overcome the odds and achieve is an inspiration to other young people from the area.

[Paula Govier Willaims, 21]

Jordon, now 17, has been involved in Juicy since he was 11 years old. Now a member of the Lawrence Weston Youth Forum and a young volunteer at Juicy Blitz Jordon spends his time (outside of his college studies)  helping to develop a mobile juice & smoothie bar enterprise project, planning activities for other young people and helping to develop Bread’s social media communications. Jordon’s also recently completed his Level 2 qualification in Youth Work.

If you’re inspired by their commitment to help other young people why not show them a bit of support, and contribute to a good cause. Text “Juic33” to 70070 with the amount you’d like to donate. You can give anything from as little as £1. Or donate via their BT mydonate pages,

The Route 
The race will start and finish in Bristol's historic Harbourside. The scenic, sea- level route will take runners past the Harbourside, out and back along the Portway, through the stunning Avon Gorge, and pass twice under Brunel’s famous Clifton Suspension Bridge, along Cumberland Road then around the old city before returning to Anchor Road. 
Our aim is to raise money to support for the work that BREAD does with young people in Lawrence Weston. 
£500 would buy equipment to allow us to train peer educators and run events. 
£1,000 would pay for a youth worker to support the project for one month.  
£ 2,000 would pay for a BREAD to run a course improving skills and employment prospects for young people in Lawrence Weston.
