The Kids on the Block project funded by BBC Children was concluded in July 2015. We were able to deliver a free activity club for children aged 8-12 years. During the last year of the project we supported 53 children.

The club provided a safe, friendly environment where the children have participated in a range of activities which the children were key in planning themselves.

The project also made actual differences to children's lives through targeting areas of disadvantage and 53 children:

  • Have improved their knowledge and understanding of healthy food choices which will improve their health and well being.
  • Have improved their understanding of their rights which empowers them to have a say and make decisions about their life including developing confidence and self-esteem.
  • Have improved their knowledge and understanding of the effects of bullying which has helped children voice their issues and concerns and improve their situation.

Over the course of 5 years (2010 - 2015) Kids on the Block supported and empowered 268 children between the ages of 8 - 12 years old living in the ward of Resolven.
