YPG invites you to an ‘Open Lunch’ at The Hub from 12 to 2 pm on 1 November to learn about their work

October 30th, 2012 by Young People Guernsey

Since The Hub opened in early September 2012, Barnardo’s have been surprised with the number of children seeking support, and also the intensive and high-end issues presented to the service. These issues include:

  • experiencing violence
  • caring responsibilities for siblings and adults
  • young girls with older boyfriends
  • general safeguarding issues
  • need for support with involvement in criminal justice system
  • bullying and problems with transition to new school

The service has been busy, and is already making a difference to the lives of some of Guernsey’s vulnerable young people.

The Hub is holding an “Open Lunch” on Thursday 1 November 2012 between midday and 2 pm when anyone can come and see what we’re up to at The Hub.

If you have not yet had an opportunity to pop in and meet the Barnardo’s staff and see our wonderful bespoke centre then do come and and join us for a sandwich and a drink. We’d be delighted to see you, answer any questions and show you around the Centre.

Young People Guernsey thank Investec Private Bank for sponsoring our “Back to Broadway” musical evening, which raised £12,000 for YPG and had the whole room dancing and cheering.

YPG is also gives a big thank you to the Directors of Livingroom for their creation and sponsorship of the “Living Art” competition which generated such wonderful and original art pieces and raised £5,000.

Bedell Cristin kindly donated £5,000 to YPG on the day The Hub launched.

On 9 November 2012, the Sydney Charles Charitable Foundation are hosting a Ball to benefit YPG.

YPG is extremely grateful to Philip Lepp and the Sydney Charles Group for supporting the charity in this way.

We hope to see you at the Open Lunch at The Hub from 12 to 2 pm on 1 November 2012, but should you have any questions or comments or feedback about YPG and the Barnardo’s service at The Hub, please contact YPG. Thank you.
