Grimethorpe Activity Zone (GAZ) Youth Club
Project Category: Registered charity
GAZ is a small charity that provides services and activities for children and young people in Grimethorpe, Barnsley. We decide our priorities through looking at research, consultation with the community and from our own knowledge of the area. The services we currently provide are after school and school holiday activity sessions, these providing a wide range of activities and very importantly, free food. Alongside this we have a project called “Kids running GAZ”. We have an elected youth committee that has an input into how sessions are run and their content. We also encouraged young people to volunteer and be trained to take part in running their sessions. During the Covid crisis, when we were unable to open our centre, we put together what we called “Cheer-up Bags” that contained a range of goodies and delivered them to the young people’s homes.
