BBC Children in Need supporting Sherborne

BBC Children in Need – the well known Pudsey logo

We are really pleased to announce that BBC Children in Need will be supporting our work with Under 18s in Sherborne for the next three years (2022-2025).

Through their small grants programme we have been awarded an annual grant of £9,700. This will make a huge difference to our ability to ensure the Sherborne team can continue reaching out to young people.

The funding will cover a series of outreach sessions, six hours of one-to-one mental health support every week for 13-18 year olds and some small targeted group work which will help the young people in our community become less isolated, learn to manage their emotions and become more confident about themselves and their ability to succeed.

More support from BBC Children in Need means…

More one to one support
Group jump
More outreach…
Close up baking...
More cooking and other targetted projects

A big thank you to everyone who contributes to the annual BBC Children in Need fundraiser!
