Whats on in and around Rowland's
Rowlands like many other voluntary sector organisations close to home and across the world have had to change and diversify in how we deliver youth work since the outbreak of covid-19 and the subsequent lock down.
The staff team have had to learn a variety of social media platforms to enable us to reach out as best we can to as many young people. All of the sessions we would have run each week if we had been open have now moved to on- line with some other additions.
Monday is arts and crafts, Tuesday is film and book club, Wednesday is bingo, Thursday is health and fitness and Friday is our new radio station and quiz at night. The bingo and quiz are open to the community to join in with as well as the radio.
We have been lucky that many of our existing and new funders have been able to support us through additional financing to purchase items for craft and activity bags, food, keeping people connected and this has made a huge difference, enabling us to re-establish contact with some young people as well as reach out to others.
We are also keen to support parents and carers during this time giving advice on additional supports as well as a listening ear which this statement is testament to from Morag who is one of our volunteers.
Our volunteers have been priceless during this time as they have been able to deliver the activity and treat bags as the none of our staff team live within the town.
In addition we continue to support partners and celebrate local and national celebrations and get involved as much as we can and again this can all be found on our facebook and twitter pages
