BLAENAU FFESTINIOG YOUTH SHED
Blaenau Shed was set up in 2019 in partnership with GISDA (homeless prevention charity) with support and funding from Bangor University, Reaching Wider and Widening Access., plus North Wales Police PACT funding.
The youngsters decided that they wanted container units - one for a chill out/planning side and the other as a workshop for activities like bike repairs, wood work and up upcycling.
The core group of 5 Shedderz led by Coordinator Angela have had a fantastic year reaching out to the young people of their town doing community projects and engagement including VR nights, Christmas hampers for local schools and Bicycle safety - they have just fitted bike lights to nearly 50 young people as a great example of their work this year despite the Lockdown!
