The Dream Scheme comes to Belper

July 14, 2008 at 6:23 pm Leave a comment

This summer “Hope For Belper” is running a Dreamscheme on the Whitemoor Estate in Belper during the week commencing 11th August 2008.
 
Dreamscheme is a community youth project for young people aged 11 – 14 years old.  It is based on a simple concept of WORK, POINTS and TRIPS.  Young people carry out community based work for which they earn POINTS. These can be exchanged for a TRIP of their choice!  It’s all free!
 
The Dreamscheme is running for one week from 11th to 15th August 2008, based in and around the Whitemoor Centre on John O’Gaunts Way, Belper. 

A booking form has been delivered to all homes in the area.  Young people must complete and return the forms by 18th July.  Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.  So hurry, don’t be disappointed!
 
“Dreamscheme is an exciting thing,” says Gareth Greenwood, one of the founders of Hope For Belper.  “The main idea behind Dreamscheme is that young people can do wonderful things!  Too often we hear the opposite. 

“Dreamscheme gives young people an opportuntiy to have fun together in a safe and supervised context doing things that benefit the community. They learn new skills, achieve news goals and build their confidence and self esteem.”
 
Hope For Belper is working with the Police, The Groundwork Tust, Amber Valley Borough Council and the local housing associations, Spirita, Derwent Living and Amber Valley Housing Ltd to deliver the Dream Scheme project.
 
“Hope For Belper is a not for profit organisation seeking to bless the community,” says Andrew Race, treasurer. “We are funded through private donations from individuals and local businesses, and grant awards.  The kids don’t have to pay a thing – it’s all free!  How good is that?”
 
Dreamscheme is run by trained volunteers who have all been CRB checked.
