We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded £21,500 from the Neumark Foundation to help 1,000 children from primary schools and groups across North Wales to gain crucial life skills from their visit to DangerPoint.
The Neumark Foundation work with different organisations across North Wales to make a difference. Founded by the Neumark family, they support charities and individuals alike whose work has a long-term positive effect on the lives of children and young people.
The funding will help subsidise both visit and transport costs for 1,000 children from primary schools and groups across North Wales from 2023 onwards. Each visit will help develop crucial life skills to enable children to make positive choices and manage risky scenarios with confidence in the future. The funding enables schools and groups to come from all corners of North Wales, with the help with transport costs being fundamental for those further afield to come and visit us.
Our Centre Manager, Julie Ann Tyler, says…
“We are very grateful that the Neumark Foundation have chosen to support schools and groups across North Wales that would otherwise struggle to attend the centre. Transport costs have increased enormously in recent months and has created an even bigger barrier for many groups. A visit to DangerPoint helps create ‘Resilient children, able to thrive’ by providing an inclusive and interactive life skills experience that immerses children between age 7 and 11 in real life situations in a fun and creative way.”
The Neumark Foundation CEO, Rebecca Prytherch said…
“We feel that DangerPoint is such an incredible place for the effective development of crucial life skills for children, that all children within primary schools across North Wales should have the opportunity to avail of this facility, which is why we are really proud to be able to provide this support”.
We are very grateful for their support and we’re very excited to welcome more young people across North Wales to the centre.
