New Mills Youth & Community Project

New Mills Youth and Community Project has been set up to benefit the community by helping to tackle a wide range of local social and environmental issues.
As a Community Interest Company the Project will apply for funding in order to invest in New Mills by facilitating a range of affordable and accessible activities and initiatives for all members of the community.
We will work in a number of different ways to promote and support the health and wellbeing of local people, as well as investing in our surroundings and caring for our environment.
– Our project will deliver a ‘Out of school support programme’ for children aged Reception to Year 11 which will consist of activities, resources and sustenance for children during half-term holidays.
– Also with the community’s youth in mind, a series of seminars will be held where a guest speaker will advise our youth groups about transitioning into adult life, with a focus on paying bills, dealing with rent / mortgage responsibilities and necessary insurances etc.
– For new parents and families, a series of first aid classes will be held, plus there will be a fund to help provide key domestic items where needed. We will aim to provide Slow Cookers, Food Processors / Blenders and recipe cards so families are better equipped to be able to produce their own home-cooked meals and baby foods etc.
– Our Project has initiatives planned to support and assist elderly residents too, such as a ‘Falls Prevention’ programme, inter-generational initiatives and social coffee mornings with activities.
*Coming soon – our Community Pantry – an accessible and affordable option for residents of New Mills and surrounding areas, to help alleviate the ongoing burden of cost for so many families and individuals.
Plus much more!
