Widening Horizons Update for 2018
Funded by the Big Lottery, our Widening Horizons project is helping to support and inspire local people to:
- Improve their health and wellbeing
- Develop skills for education and employment
- Improve their confidence and self-esteem
- Try out new things in a friendly and supportive environment
- Access a greater number of mental health support services
- Combat loneliness – with something for everyone
The Widening Horizons project commenced at Auckland Youth and Community Centre in December 2016 and will continue for at least 3 years. We are already gearing up towards finding the funds we need to continue the project into 2020 and beyond.
Our Widening Horizons outcomes are:
- Outcome 1: Children, young people and adults will have improved physical and emotional health and wellbeing.
- Outcome 2: Children and young people will have improved personal and social skills, confidence and respect for their own community.
- Outcome 3: Young people and adults will have improved educational and employment prospects due to increased learning opportunities and improved skills.
- Outcome 4: Socially isolated people will have improved opportunities to engage in social, recreational and educational activities, thus reducing loneliness.
