Scouting offers challenge and adventure to young people age 6 to 25. The 1st Shipley (Windhill) Group provides weekly meetings with a programme of exciting and challenging activities designed to develop teamworking skills, self-reliance, life skills and public service awareness.

We also give basic training in skills such as first aid and fire precautions and opportunities to develop hobbies such as photography, ornithology and gardening. Training is available for leaders. All activities are controlled by the Scout Association's "Policy, Organisation and Rules" and by relevant Government regulations. Currently our programme provides for young people age 6 up to about 18 years. Those aged 18 to 25, if not in a leadership role are catered for at District level. Leadership roles are available from age 16 to 18 as Young Leaders and 18+ as Adult Leaders. Full training to national recognised standards is provided for all leaders. For those not wishing to have a regular commitment we have vacancies for advisors and helpers at all levels and a variety of disciplines as well as administration openings.

2Tshirt Gang

2tshirtgang, run by Anthony, Trinity & Cleo, is a sports specific training academy based in Bradford.

The trio wanted to give the youth in their community access to professional training.

They support young clients with aspirations to go on to be a professional in sports, educate them in health and fitness and endeavour to keep them off the streets.

2tshirtgang recognised that health was poor in the community due to lifestyle, lack of education and limited access. Wanting to change this, 5 years ago 2tshirtgang was born.

Anthony and best friend Trinity have been training together for a few years. In the past youths and people in the community started to ask if they could train with them. However, their workouts were intense and people began to learn that when they trained with them they needed to bring 2 TSHIRTS to change into, halfway through the workout. This stuck with them as a nickname, and organically grew into the business name!

Services offered include:
Personal training
Youth functional training
Athlete training
Community functional training

After lunch there is a time to relax and enjoy a game of dominoes or simply chat with others. Every month there is bingo and at least three times a year the 55 Club committee arrange special outings to the seaside or places of interest. Throughout the year there are invited speakers to talk on various health and lifestyle topics. These sessions are voiced over for hard of hearing people and BSL interpreted for D/deaf people as appropriate..

Founded in Bristol in 2014, ACORN is a mass membership organisation and network of low-income people organising for a fairer deal for our communities. The idea is simple but ambitious – to build a national community organisation along the lines of a trade union; organising our communities and fighting for a better quality of life. What began with a few local residents trying to tackle slum housing in their neighbourhood has quickly developed into a national organisation with thousands of members and branches across the country. We think inequality and social problems are about power. We believe that the only way we’ll see meaningful action is if we can counter the power of money and establishment politics with the power of people taking collective action. Everyone has the right to a place at the table and ACORN puts community organisation at the heart of the fight for economic and social justice. Every day we hear the issues facing our communities: rising housing costs, stagnant wages and brutal cuts that have starved our public services. Wealth is being transferred upwards, and the only solution is for people to get organised and win it back.

Action For Children

How Action for Children works
From before they are born until they are into their twenties, we help disadvantaged children across the UK.
We help them through fostering or adoption – and by intervening early to stop neglect and abuse. We make life better for children with disabilities. We influence policy and advocate for change. Our 7,000 staff and volunteers operate over 522 services, improving the lives of 301,000 children, teenagers, parents and carers every year. We succeed by doing what’s right, doing what’s needed, and doing what works for children.
