Securing the best start in life for our children and young people
Investing in youth recreational programmes
In order to make sustainable improvements to the aspiration, achievement and life skills of young people across the borough, Doncaster Council has committed £475,000 to support the development of Expect Youth (EY). The programme delivers over 40 activities in collaboration with 20 specialist delivery organisations. EY aims to bring together a range of extra-curricular programmes to develop essential life skills such as resilience, self-confidence, leadership, honesty, integrity, engaged citizenship, respect and empathy. At the Expect Youth Summer programme alone, 3,462 young people facing disadvantage took part in activities such as Zorbing, First Aid Training, Hair and Beauty, Castle Club, Dance, Multi Sports, and many more.
