It would not be possible to run such a large youth engagement project without our volunteers. We thank everybody that has decided to give some of their spare time to the project.
We welcome people of any age from a wide range of backgrounds and with different interests.
|This ensures our young people have access to a diverse range of positive adult role models. Different generations coming together in a supportive environment helps develop a more cohesive local community.|
Our volunteers provide our paid staff with a way of running a wider range of activities than we could otherwise provide.
The project provides volunteers with a way to make a positive difference to the lives of young people from the local area. Volunteering can also provide volunteers with new skills and new friends.
It can also help you keep ‘young of mind’.
Come along and find out about what young people are talking and thinking about today.
It’s up to you to decide how much spare time you want to allocate to helping out, but to ensure that we can run the project’s activities adequately and safely, we have a regularly updated volunteer’s rota so each volunteer knows when they have agreed to be available.

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.
