Prestonpans Centre Management Committee - P7 Youth Group £6025

2024-04-29  •  7 comments  •  ebrown3  •  PSG Area Partnership

Prestonpans Community Centre Management Committee would like to apply for funding the P7 Youth club that runs on Wednesday evenings and has been running in some form since 1982.

The P7 transition team within the PSG area would like to continue supporting P7 children with their transition into high school and to increase involvement in the community. Last year we saw P7 pupils struggling with the changes to their normal transition to high school due to the building issues the high school faced. Alongside this, we continue to see many more children struggling with mental health, transitions and engaging positively in the community. Through the development of a P7 group we can explore these issues in a productive way and increase engagement with communities and children’s opportunities for wellbeing.
