Objectives

Didcot TRAIN, Inspiring Young People, registered charity no.1176258 works with and for all young people in Didcot, especially those who, for whatever reason, are having a tough time.  Our vision is for all the young people of Didcot and the surrounding area to be empowered to grow into social and personal stability.

We deliver youth work to the young people of Didcot and its surrounding area.  We work particularly to fill the gap in provision of youth services for young people who do not easily engage with mainstream youth provision but who nevertheless are vulnerable and at risk of education failure, crime, CSE, alcohol and substance abuse and other forms of risky behaviour.

Activities

TRAIN’s work includes the following activities:

  • Group and one to one mentoring of young people referred by services such as the local police, the Hub, and schools;
  • Regular and sustained youth work in the streets, shopping areas and parks of Didcot, meeting the young people where they feel comfortable, engaging with their interests and concerns and enabling them to participate in positive activities;
  • Term-time and school holiday activities and residential trips to build self-esteem and provide alternative activities to being on the streets and engaging in risky and antisocial behaviour;
  • Drop-in advice and support sessions
