Hampshire and Isle Of Wight Foundation
The community cohesion team were awarded additional funding from the Hampshire Police & Crime Commissioner through Hampshire & IOW Community Foundation (HIWCF) in September 2015. Aim of this is to engage approximately 45 young people aged 12-17 years in a series of diversionary outreach activities based in Portsmouth.
We took a group of 8 young people to Portsmouth Watersports Centre to take part in an Extreme Adventure camp in October half term 2015. This week long course enabled young people to try out a variety of different activities each day including sailing, paddle boarding, kayaking, wind-surfing and climbing building their confidence, improving their social skills and generally to have fun!!
In February and Easter holidays in 2016, we will be taking more young people horse-riding and rock climbing.
