Please give them the chance they deserve

Rose Hill is recognised as a “pocket of deprivation” with 48% of children living in poverty, the highest level in Oxford City.  Poverty disadvantages children and families in many ways and can contribute to economic, social and health difficulties throughout life.

Rose Hill Junior Youth Club is a dynamic, exciting place offering innovative play, support and fun to over 180 children a week. It is the only external opportunity on the estate for children aged 5 – 12 to engage in creative free play and organised sport. Over 40% of the children have social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. Children from 18 different cultural groups come to the club, making it truly multi cultural.

Parents volunteer their time including those who run the healthy eating and cooking project which provides 180 meals a week to the children. The club also offers a Young Leaders programme for older children, a sports developmeThe nt programme, art and craft, drama and dance. Experienced, trained staff lead the activities and provide a consistent supportive structure and care.

The club costs £52000 per year to run. Our Lottery funding has now ended and a fundraising committee has been formed, inspired by the quality of this project and its significance in the community. Will you join us by making a one off contribution or a regular donation of £5, £10 or more a month?
