We have recently granted further funds to a project working to support young people in Barnsley.
The Exodus Project has been running for 20 years and reaches over 400 children and young people every week, through a series of activity clubs and camps.
Our donation will support The Exodus Project’s weekend camps run at their activity centre, Jenny’s Field. The centre has become established as a place where often vulnerable children and young people find a sense of belonging and purpose, and create an environment which helps to build trusting relationships with others.
One parent said: “It's amazing what the Exodus Project do for the children, such a healthy environment. I’d like to say a huge thank you; my children said it was the best weekend ever!”
The Exodus camps provide fun and friendship through a range of activities which build on their weekly activity sessions delivered across Barnsley. They also support the project’s aim to grow the aspirations of children and young people across the community.
Growing the aspirations of local children, especially those living in less advantaged circumstances, is at the heart of what Exodus achieves. Without partners like Henry Boot, it simply would not happen. Heartfelt thanks from everyone at Exodus.
