EXPECT Youth Welcome New Members!

27 September 2019

Expect Youth is delighted to have welcomed on board new members.


A number of new voluntary organisations have teamed up with Expect Youth, who are supporting them to achieve a Safer Spaces Quality Mark.


The quality mark enables organisations to seek out greater funding opportunities and help them ensure they have all the correct policies and procedures in place.


The groups took part in training on Monday, September 16 at The Point in Doncaster, organised by Expect Youth.


The training was delivered in partnership with UK Youth and provided the groups with hints and tips about how to operate most successfully as a voluntary organisation.


Chris Bycroft, who coaches basketball with Danum Eagles, took part in the training. He works with people from a wide variety of backgrounds and improves their confidence and other skills through basketball. 


He said: "The highlight of the training has been the group work; having fun with the other organisations here and finding new ways to work with people."


Laura and Lucan Landley from Reptile Rendezvous also said that it was "great to see how other organisations were operating". Part of their work involves working with children, the elderly and a variety of other groups to improve communication and interaction through animals.
