The latest from Kids Kabin in Cowgate
Many projects at Kids Kabin involve our partner organisations in the local areas in which we work, and we feel it’s an important part of being a member at Kids Kabin to practise your skills in ways that can have a positive impact on the wider community.
A great example is our work during October half-term, which Kids Kabin members in Cowgate in Newcastle spent working together to build two large planters to help support a local project, with Projects 4 Change, at Blakelaw Community Allotment.
Kelly from Projects 4 Change, which works within communities and in partnership with others to create youth work projects that help young people develop, said: "It was lovely to welcome Kids Kabin to Blakelaw Community Allotment to help us build two large raised beds during half term.
“It's great for everyone when projects work together to benefit local young people."
Jude, a Kids Kabin volunteer that worked as part of the project added: “Working with local projects and organisations is a good way to highlight community solidarity and the great camaraderie that can come from working together in unison.”
