Other local partners: South Tyneside Council, Sport England, UK Shared Prosperity Fund

About the project

The project:

Harton & Westoe Miners Welfare support the wellbeing of all people in their local community and help make life a fulfilling and enjoyable experience. Their sports and recreational facilities host many different sports including football, gymnastics, bowls and cricket, as well as a function room. However there was little storage for all of the different sports to safely store the equipment at the venue. We created a stud wall across the full length of the function room, split into four lockable storage cupboards.

The young people: 18 young people from South Tyneside College, mostly young people for whom English is a second language

The impact:

  • 12 Entry Level 3 City & Guilds accreditations earned in Carpentry and Painting & Decorating
  • New lockable storage cupboards for different sports clubs to use to secure their equipment safely and efficiently
  • A larger, decluttered function room, freed up from storage to hire out for external events and secure additional income for the club
