Branch Up aims to tackle extra- curricular disadvantage. Many of the children that we work with do not have access to extracurricular activities. This has a detrimental effect on their social development and their educational attainment.
We aim to give young people access to opportunities they would not otherwise have had while improving their social skills and confidence.
Branch Up run three activity days per semester for young people referred by social services
These days include visiting a zoo, going ice skating or running sports and art workshops
You will be paired one on one with a young person for the full day. Therefore the young person benefits from near to peer interactions.
We will provide you with a range of ongoing support and training.
