The Youth & Play Sector has suffered from huge reductions in Government funding in recent years, unfortunately many youth & play centres have closed down as a result. We are working hard with our staff, volunteers and users to protect the Vench and ensure it is still here to provide a safe and vibrant place for future generations of Lockleaze children, young people and families.
We rely on three main income streams:
- Grant funding: we recieve support for specific projects from trusts and the local authority, including Nisbet Trust, Quartet CF and Wesport.
- Traded income: we hire the playground and building to various organisations and local community groups. We have special rates for not-for-profit groups, find out more here.
- Public donations: we strongly believe that play and youth provision should be free and accessible to every young person in Lockleaze, so we do not charge for our sessions. However, we do ask those who can afford to donate to help contribute to the significant costs of maintaining an adventure playground and help us sustain our services into the future. Find out how to donate via our GoFundMe.org below.
