September’s Youthwork theme has been #SquadGoals looking at Friendships old and new. We have especially been supporting young people as they transition between primary and secondary school as well as those leaving school for college, apprenticeships, work or further education. Here is just a little of what we have been up to:
September started as a musical month. Senior Youthworker Becky Launched her new EP at a concert in Stroud while The Vibe partied at a Karaoke Night
The Vibe also hosted the official relaunch of The Door’s youthwork in Cam and Dursley while Avening celebrated lots of birthdays (with lots of cake!)
Avening has also been full of creativity making outfits and embracing human sized board games including hungry hippos on Skateboards!
Cam have also been keeping active with football outside the centre and even a couple of games of hide and seek (Has anyone seen Kathleen?)
As the evenings draw Young people across the district have enjoyed playing computer games in teams and against each other including Mario Kart and Fifa.

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)
