Pershore Riverside Centre CIO (Charity Number: 1156413) helps local young people (9-25) to increase their personal capabilities, gain confidence, raise expectations and improve their prospects.

“Good youth work helps young people to have fun, while quietly supporting them to face their personal challenges and to be the best they can be.” Liz Tucker, Chair of Trustees

This year we are helping many more young people to adjust to changed situations, move forwards and start to make a positive difference in their lives. “As an adult, I realise what a massive impact the youth centre had on me and really don’t know what I would have done without it.” Click here to read more.

Continuing and expanding this work to meet demand requires constant fundraising and promotion, bringing together our youth work expertise, the Centre’s amazing facilities and the wider community. Can you help us to raise awareness of the need for our services raise funds to ensure it is affordable to those who need it most?

🌈 Introducing your Pershore Carnival 2024 “best motorised float” winners 2024 🏆
A huge congratulations to our youth groups who have spent the last 3 months consulting, creating and performing for this years @pershore_carnival 💖

Our youth groups have had the wonderful opportunity to work alongside Clik Clik Collective for the 11th year to design this years float. 🎨

With this years theme “musicals” - The young people were inspired by the Barbie film and the music involved, and then…. many ideas came to mind! 🎶

The young people loved the music in Barbie, which created the idea “Youthie”. Each young person came as a different character to celebrate the Diversity elements in the recent Barbie movie.
This also merged with our philosophy to youth work we deliver to young people by celebrating and embracing each young person being unique in their social and emotion development. There were also boards on the float to show how we create a 'Positive community' through diversity.
We were proud yesterday to shout this message throughout Pershore at this wonderful event 😃

From the planning process to implementing their idea to a reality - Young people are always at the centre of our work, with the gentle help from youth workers! We are so proud of everyone who took part this year. Congratulations all 💕🏆😃
