Crew Club Education, Support & Life Skills Sessions

The Crew Club is a fantastic community-led charity that provides a vital safe space, full of activities and opportunities for children, young people and families living in Whitehawk, Brighton.  One of the key aims of the Club is to ensure that children and young people have the opportunity, and are equipped with the skills they need, to lead healthy and socially connected lives.

We are delighted, as part of our UK Programme, to be working with the dedicated team at Crew Club to offer a series of education focused, health and well-being activities, aimed at 7-19 year olds.  These free events, that will run over the course of two school terms, are specifically targeted at providing educational support outside of the classroom, improving life skills, and encouraging creativity and practical skills.

With school being a challenge for some young people, and often home not being condusive to study after school, it was great to work with the Crew Club to develop an 'open to all' Homework Club; as well as a Yr 10 targeted series of Maths & English Tutoring Sessions to help students prepare for their GCSE's; and a programme of Primary to Secondary Transition Support Sessions for younger pupils in Year 6 who may need a little more help with the move to senior school.   All of these are being provided in a welcoming, supportive space, aimed at breaking down educational barriers, and best of all are totally free to attend.

As well as these fantastic mainstream educational opportunities, funding has also been provided for more creative learning activities like music production sessions and hairdressing skills.

Crew Club Co-Manager, Lorraine Snow MBE, said "We are very proud of partnering with Fonthill Foundation to deliver this much needed range of support sessions and activities.  Young people in our community will really benefit from these new opportunities at the Club."
