This month The Door’s youthwork team have been running activities based on ‘Be yourself’ here’s what they have been getting up to:

Over in Avening the young people have been thinking about what helps and hinders them being themselves by drawing and labelling people.

The team also welcomed year 3’s to session for the first time as part of our summer inductions.


Over in Dursley the team enjoyed visiting the Carnival, Kathleen even dressed up as Dora (or should it be Doora!) the explorer for the afternoon!

In the Cam centre the refurbishments continue with the delivery of new chairs and bean bags. The young people have also been doing makeovers.

Stroud enjoyed watching the remainder of the world cup and enjoyed english breakfast brunch.




Becky continues to visit the Archway year 7’s playing games and chatting at lunchtime. This month she joined them on their charity walk to Haresfield Beacon. Becky also attended Home Start’s AGM in preparation for our work with them and our aDOORables project.


And finally term time has come to an end this month with parties and activities in Wotton, North Nibley and Avening, celebrating the end of term with games, food and fun!




Remember, the fun doesn’t stop because school finished for the year. Unlike many other services The Door is open in Stroud, Stonehouse, Cam and Dursley throughout the summer with a jam-packed program of exciting trips and activities – details of which can be found at thedoor.org.uk/summer and don’t forget to like us on Facebook for up to date photos and news @TheDoorStroud



Covid-19 has caused panic and fear across the world. For some of the young people and families supported by The Door, their fragile mental health status prior to Covid-19 is being exacerbated in the current climate; many are feeling out of control and more anxious about their lives.

While we are seeing demand for our services grow we are also losing £500 every working day in income as a result of lockdown. Please donate today to help The Door reach every young person and family that needs our support, especially at this most challenging of times.

If you are a new donor, The Door will receive match funding on donations over £500 (more details on our website)
