The Ark Trust has recently been granted funding to open a new facility for young people and the wider community called ‘Our Place’. This will be based in the previously known ‘TRAX’ Youth Centre, Mill Lane, North Ascot.
Since January 2014 the building has been used by disability groups, nurseries, the local drug and alcohol service, drama groups and the local community (for private hire)
From next month using a multi arts project to get the ball rolling we aim to engage the wider community, particularly young people. June 2015 sees the start of weekly workshops to produce a design which together will be painted in our sports hall. Alongside a multimedia project which we hope will excite and engage a diverse group of people, bringing the community together.
This is only the beginning, and we will be developing services moving forwards based on feedback and the needs of local people.
This exciting project kicks off with a weekly youth club opening June the 2nd, with a launch event held over three days in the May Half term the week before where all are welcome to pop in and find out more.
The Ark Trust understands the importance of hearing the voice of and being part of the local community, and we really want ‘Our Place’ to be your place too.
