What is it?
The Activities Project is where we do lots of fun activities to help you:
- Feel more confident about talking to other children
- Try new things
- Feel proud of yourself
- Make new friends
Some of the activities we have done before are:
- Pottery making and painting
- Exotic animal visits
- Silent disco
- Ice skating
- 3D pen and toy hacking workshop
- Graffiti workshop
- Stand up Paddleboarding
- Baking and cooking
- Scavenger hunts
- Tennis lessons
- Games/sports afternoon
- Escape Room
- Laser tag
- Street dance
Sometimes these activities might be creative, like pottery making or 3D pen workshops – these give you the chance to talk to other children or maybe give you a quieter space to try something new.
Other times we might do some things that get you out of your comfort zone – like Stand Up Paddleboarding or ice skating.
All of the activities are planned to help you to feel confident. Safety Net staff and volunteers are with you every step of the way to help you if you feel nervous about taking part.
Each activity is free for you as well, so you don’t have to worry about paying for them.
Who is it for?
If you have finished SNAP or BRAVE in school then you will be invited to The Activities Project. Sometimes we have family activities too, so your parents and siblings might be invited to a few activities.
When does it happen?
We run activities in the school holidays and sometimes after school. Occasionally we have an activity or two on a weekend. If you can’t make it to an activity, that’s fine! We will just invite you to a different one some other time.
