Yes, You Can!
Adactus ‘BIG‘ have funded ‘You Can’, a Salford based youth club, with a £1,875 grant to support specialist workers in delivering sports, arts, crafts, games and outdoor pursuits for young people who have a disability or learning difficulties.
Elliott McKinnell, Programme Manager at You Can stated; “Through research and consultation we have identified that living in Salford and being disabled can lead to a range of issues. Our members and their families say that social interaction and development is the most important outcome delivered by our service. You Can Youth Project delivers a range of activities for approximately 30 young people in the area”.
Claudine Harrison-Draper, Enterprise & Funding administration said; “the Breathe Team were delighted to support such a important project, funding from ourselves has assisted the group to carry on running such a justifiable project. When Elliott sent us project update pictures via our Community Facebook page, it truly did made us feel proud to support the group. The happiness and fun of the young people on the photos really did make us feel like this project was very much worth the investment and so pleased that it had been approved by the Adactus500 members, who vote on all the funding applications that we receive”.
