We understand that parents are the primarily carers for their children and young people and that you might want to know a bit more about us and what we do.
We are a registered charity (charity number 1143203).
The Porch Project was started in 2009 when it was realised that the young people of Hadleigh had nowhere where they could meet safely and regularly. So it was decided to make the Church available to them and provide some recreational activities and food.
While the project is based in St Mary’s Church, there is no religious teaching involved in any of the activities undertaken with young people unless this is something they want to talk about.
Today, the project currently engages with over 450 young people.
It engages with young people through its evening drop-in centre in the Church, its state of the art media and computer suite, learning and support programmes, school visits and street work. Over 300 local young people are registered with the project and regularly use the project’s facilities and support programmes. Normally we have between 70-100 young people attending our drop-in centre sessions.
