The Community Outreach department looks to connect and engage with a wide range of young people across the borough of Dudley and beyond. We also form and build meaningful relationships between Phase Trust and other professionals to strengthen the work in our surrounding communities.
The community outreach department provide and looks to support groups and individuals through:
Schools Work: Including lunch and after schools group. We also offer a lunch time detached group, which would involve at least two team members engaging in relational work with students.
Local Partnerships: Our aim is to build relationships with other local professional youth workers in joining together to work for a similar goal. We have a good partnership with West Midlands Police, we aim to support each other around our local area with detached work and the PCSO's as well as engaging in our evening youth club.
Detached Work: We have a team of trained staff and volunteers who look to engage young people who want to socialise in the local community. We look to build relationship with these individuals and challenge any anti-social behaviour they may be engaging in.
Engaging Youth Clubs: We currently provide a safe space and positive role models for our Friday night youth group called the Hub, aimed at school years 7-12 were we provide specific workshops to help and encourage young people to become aware of the choices that are being presented to them at this stage in their lives, whilst having fun.
We are currently looking how we can grow to offer an additional night specifically for 14-18year olds.
Volunteering: There are various opportunities to volunteer with the work of Phase Trust. If this is something you wish to discuss further please get in touch with the Head of Community Outreach.
