Laptops worth £1,800 given to local young people to help them find work or get back into education

Opt Into

Crawley young people taking part in a project called Opt Into have received three brand new Dell laptops, courtesy of £1,800 funding provided by West Sussex County Council’s Community Initiative Fund.

Opt Into is a project run by YMCA DownsLink Group. The project works with young people aged 16-18, who are not in employment, education or training. The project is based in the Bewbush Youth Centre, in the heart of one of Crawley’s key communities.

Richard Massing, Opt Into Co-ordinator, spoke about what this funding will mean to the project: “This will make a big difference to the work we do in Bewbush. We were struggling along with a couple of clunky old laptops we got from a charity shop. Now it is much easier for us to offer a level of support and training we can really feel proud of.”

Louis Smith, aged 18, spent six weeks on Opt Into. During this time he gained his Construction Skills Certification Scheme card and was supported into a full-time job on a construction site in West Sussex. Louis sent a text message on his first day on the job saying, “Just want to say a big thank you to everyone at Opt Into, you have helped me a lot. cheers!”

A Knock Out Success For Youth Boxing Course

Friday, July 19th, 2013

West Sussex County Council Youth and Crawley Amateur Boxing Club came together for a six week introduction to boxing course for the youths at Bewbush Youth Centre.

(L-R) Peter, Scott, Matarr, Michael, Lauren & Chidi

(L-R) Peter, Scott, Matarr, Michael, Lauren & Chidi

Starting with nine candidates the course ended with five dedicated youths who loved the boxing course and what it had to teach them. This included stamina, respect, focus, discipline and routine.

Nikki Triggs, a West Sussex County Council Youth Worker told us “at the beginning of every term we plan our sessions and we ask the youths what they want to do too. We do EIP (early intervention prevention work with young people) and this time we decided to focus on anger management and exercise. Boxing was one of the suggestions and this is what the children chose to do. They thoroughly enjoyed it and we would love to see more of this again in the future. There are alot of young people out there to engage with. We feel the youths got fit and some of them even stopped smoking, which we think is great.”

We spoke to Matarr Wanda and Chidi Amanwa who assisted CABC with the training. Matarr is currently the Southern and Eastern Champion and has been training with CABC for five years, competitively for six months. Matarr told us “the course went really well and the youths were very responsive. I think they gained alot of discipline and respect from the course and also felt enthused.” Chidi who is just 14 told us “I think the youths gained alot of confidence from the course and self control. It showed them there is another way of expressing anger or frustration, in a controlled environment with great trainers.” Chidi is currently National School Boy Champion under seventy five kilos. Chidi hopes to become professional in the future.

Michael Decker, Level one Caoch at CABC  told us “this is our very first outreach programme and Bewbush was the first six week introduction to boxing scheme. Some of the youths were very impressive and I feel they could be good boxers if they kept it up. We would like to encourage more female boxers as only 10% of the boxing world are female.”

Peter Hopcraft told us “we have been a bit gym tired lately so when Michael came on board he put us out there on the interweb and got in touch with WSCC to discuss taking boxing out to the youths of Crawley. We would love to have more interaction with the youths so if any other group would like to engage with us on a programme we are more than keen to do so.”

On Saturday, young people from Oriel Youth Wing and Bewbush Youth Centre were invited to Solihull

Monday, February 14th, 2011

On Saturday, young people from Oriel Youth Wing and Bewbush Youth Centre were invited to Solihull to speak at “Choose Youth” a National Youth Rally to stop the cuts to the country’s youth services.

Stuart Bayliss, Callum Vitler, Kate Moore, Lee Bell and Aaron Lumley at the event in Solihull

Over 1000 young people were at the event, attended by cross party MP’s, Councillors and Youth Workers, who heard from Youth People across England who are facing cuts to their Youth Service.

Chris Oxlade, County Councillor for Bewbush and Ifield West went with the young people from Crawley and said “It was an emotive and passionate cry to stop the Conservative-led cuts to our Youth Service here in West Sussex and in other parts of the country. Our young people from Crawley stood up and spoke about how much their youth centre has meant to them and done for them. It’s a deep shame that on Friday, West Sussex County Council voted another £2million of cuts to the youth service which will cut youth centres here in Crawley. Every Conservative Crawley County Councillor who was at the meeting on Friday voted for the cuts. Despite a Labour motion to put money back into the Youth Service, the conservatives refused to support the idea and voted it out.”

Bewbush Graffiti Cube

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

Young people from Bewbush Youth Centre have left their mark on the regeneration of Dorsten Square by creating a graffiti art cube.

Working with local graffiti artist, Skribblez, young people took part in design workshops at Bewbush youth centre and used their new skills to create the graffiti art over a few weekends.

The cube, a small sub-station owned and maintained by EDF Energy and located opposite the new Bewbush Centre, has been transformed into a bright and colourful display featuring original designs.

The youngsters were particularly interested in the theme of anti-crime and worked with the artist on finding relevant images they felt would give a positive message to the community.

Councillor Lenny Walker, Cabinet member for Leisure and Culture, said: “This is a fantastic piece of art which highlights the breadth of talent in our youngsters that needs to be encouraged across the borough as a whole. I’d like to think it helps to highlight the need for some careful consideration of the potential impact of the youth services review.”

He added: “I know people’s taste in art differs widely but this shows our youngsters in a really positive light and at their creative best. It means the area has a piece of contemporary art which reflects them and gives them a real sense of ownership in their area.”

The work was part of the area’s regeneration and was coordinated by Crawley Council staff with support from West Sussex County Council Youth Service.

The designs on the graffiti cube will be staying put until early summer when the local artist will be coming back to work with the young people to create new designs so that the cube is kept up to date and clean.

For more information or if you would like to be involved in the project in May please contact Liz Hart Community Arts Officer on 01293 438565 or Vikki Jacobs Community Development Officer on 01293 438565

Kids create graffiti cube

Young people from Bewbush Youth Centre have left their mark on the regeneration of Dorsten Square by creating a graffiti art cube.

Working with local graffiti artist, Skribblez, 11 young people took part in two design workshops at the youth centre and created the graffiti art last weekend (December 11 and 12).

The cube, a small sub-station owned and maintained by EDF Energy and located by the bus stop, has been transformed into a bright and colourful display featuring original designs.

Councillor Lenny Walker, Cabinet member for Leisure and Culture, said: “This is a fantastic piece of work which the kids are very proud of; I know people’s taste in art differs widely but this shows our youngsters in a really positive light and at their creative best”

“It means the area has a piece of contemporary art which reflects them and gives them a real sense of ownership in their area.”

The work was part of the area’s regeneration and was coordinated by staff from Crawley Borough Councils’ Community Arts and Community Development Teams, with support from West Sussex County Council Youth Service.

Further designs will be created at the cube in early summer and autumn 2011.
