FUN Youth Club News – launch of NEW FUNZONE CLUB

Dear FUN Members

Our Monday evening Youth club is becoming increasingly popular with more young people wishing to attend each week.  The numbers of young people attending our Monday Club is now making it more difficult for staff to appropriately support all of the young people and provide activities that are suitable to the wide age range of 10-17 years. 

As a result, the management and trustees at F.U.N. have taken the decision to create a second evening club and divide the existing age range across the two clubs.  This will allow F.U.N to support more young people at our evening clubs and also enable us to provide more age-appropriate activities for both age groups.

We are therefore delighted to announce that after the Easter break, we will be offering two evening clubs with the launch of our new FUNZONE CLUB for 10-14 year olds.  This new club will be held on a Wednesday evening term-time from 6.30pm-8.30pm. Our first FunZone Club will be held on Wednesday 27th April 2022 6.30pm-8.30pm.

Our Monday evening Youth Club will continue for our older young people aged from 14-17 years, with club times remaining as 6.30pm-8.30pm.  This change will allow us to provide activities for our older teenagers that are more targeted to their age group.  Our first Youth Club with this new age range will be held on Monday 25th April 2022 6.30pm-8.30pm

The new FunZone Club will provide a year of overlap with our older Youth Club to allow parents of children aged 14 to choose the club that they feel is best suited to the needs of their child. This overlap also provides flexibility when the young people are transitioning from the FunZone club to the Youth Club in a way that is best for them.  Please note – that members aged 14 will only be able to access one of the clubs.

As with our existing Youth Club, our FunZone club is designed for young people who can be successfully supported on a 1:3 staff ratio, with activities designed for those with mild to moderate learning difficulties.

Our existing Youth club (for ages 10-17) will continue as normal on Monday 21st March and 28th March 2022.

We are also happy to announce that our new FunZone Club Co-Ordinator will be Halima Khan, with Sabba Shahid continuing as our Youth Club Co-Ordinator for the older age group.

If you have a young person aged 10-17 years who would like to attend one of these evening clubs, or you have any queries or questions, please contact the office on 01582 420800 (office hours are 9am to 3pm Monday to Friday), or email us at info@familiesunitednetwork.org.uk and we will put you in touch with either Halima or Sabba.

Many thanks & kind regards

The FUN Team
