Fun United Bedford

We provide youth clubs for young people with additional needs on a Saturday morning for them to come along and meet friends in a safe and fun environment. This gives parents an opportunity for some respite, knowing their young person is being supported and well cared for and having fun with their peers. We encourage young people to learn new skills and have new experiences which in turn builds their confidence, self esteem and promotes participation and independence. We ask the young people for their ideas and input for our sessions and activities to ensure we are meeting their needs and expectations.

We have two groups: kids group for ages 11-12 and youth group for ages 13-17 years (we can continue to support young people at the youth group when they reach 17)

Activities that we offer are varied and include centre based activities such as arts and crafts, cooking, games, street dancing, soft play and we also have a tv/dvd/wii and games. We also run trips to the local cinema, the pottery kiln, local museums and events taking place in Bedford.

Ormiston Families Support for children and young people affected by imprisonment

We support children and their families affected by imprisonment. We manage the Visitors centre at HMP Bedford and operate a play area for children to use while they visit. We offer family support to prisoners and special children's visits. We deliver a parenting course to prisoners and other child related courses.

In the community we support children who have a parent or significant family member in prison. Referrals are made from schools, social workers or families. We meet the parent and then see the child on a one to one basis in their school. Initially for an hour per week. Usually we arrange 6 sessions but these can be extended (and usually are) if the outcomes are not met or new outcomes have developed. We continually evaluate the work with the parent and child.

After the intervention, we can offer a volunteer mentor service for children living locally where they can be taken out on social outings to improve emotional wellbeing.
