Pershore’s Riverside Centre CIO (1156413) supports the young adults of tomorrow. Our experienced Youth Workers provide a safe and friendly environment for young people, through accessible and affordable drop-in sessions, activities and ongoing support, including summer activity weeks.
“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
A genuine community resource, the Centre is also home to Wychavon Kayak and Canoe Club, St John Ambulance, Bonkers Activities, Worcester Short-Breaks Sunday Club and Worcestershire Parent Carers group. Our spacious, riverside venue with parking is ideal for groups and party bookings.
With special thanks to AWARDS FOR ALL, for their contribution in making this project possible. AFA funded a ‘healthy active lifestyle’ project which included 12 young people from our local Middle School to participate with the centre to identify, achieve and promote to their peers how this can be possible growing up in a rural community.
They have worked with the Centre Management to inspire others how to live a healthy lifestyle mentally and physically – sharing their own stories and participation in their local community.
Rural Media especially helped to plan, prepare and support the young people to direct and produce this video production by themselves. You can view the project blog on our Instagram! @Pershoreyouthy
THANK YOU FRIENDS OF PERSHORE HOSPITAL!
May 2020 – Friends of Pershore Hospital have kindly donated £2,000 to go towards the refurbishment of our Kitchen equipment.
