Who are we?
As a charity, we have a volunteer board of trustees who live in the local area.
We have an experienced team of Youth Workers, who oversee and manage all contact and activities with young people. They are supported by 30 volunteers from the local area.
Everybody that comes into contact with young people at the project undergoes an enhanced Disclosure and Barring (DBS) check. Each person is issued with a certificate to confirm the check has been undertaken and they are clear to work with children and young people.
Who can use the Porch Project?
Children and young people between the ages of 11-20 years, who live in Hadleigh or the surrounding areas.
We are extreemly grateful to Nordson Dage for supporting the Project with a grant for £2,400 to get our Horizons Programme up and running.
On August 8th & 9th the Porch Project were fortunate enough to be able to take seven young people to France on a two-day WW1 Battlefield Tour. This was made available to us by Mark Brennan and the Hadleigh Great War Centenary Project, www.hadleighww1.com . What a wonderful opportunity for local young people to witness first-hand the great sacrifice and bravery of their local forefathers.
On July 28th the Porch Project were very pleased to welcome Tim Passmore, the Suffolk Police and Crime Commissioner our temporary offices in Corks Lane.
Thank you to everyone who came along to our Summer Celebration & AGM and to the Lindsey Rose for providing the delicious food.
We are very grateful for the continuing support from the local community.
