Through a weekly schedule of donations from local companies, FareShare and the generosity of those that can spare an extra bag of pasta or a tin of beans whilst shopping, we aim to provide a service whereby those in need can access food provisions.

When children visit us, we ensure they leave with some food for themselves and their family! Through a weekly schedule of donations from local companies, FareShare and the generosity of those that can spare an extra bag of pasta or a tin of beans whilst shopping, we aim to provide a service whereby those in need can access food provisions. Access to FoodShare is open to everyone, no food bank / social referrals are needed.  All we ask is that you take what you need and can use so there is enough for everyone.

The Game Changerz Open Event

News

Last night was our first Community Games Open Event and we had so much fun!

What took place...

The event started off with outdoor games, an inflatable obstacle course, a bouncy castle, penalty shoot out, rugby tackle challenge and zorbing within the main hall.

With activities such as traditional garden games was exciting to see the parents get involved as well.

Plenty of children battled it out in the Tackle Bag Challenge and the winning child achieved a brilliant score of 20.1 seconds but another child was only just behind with 20.4 seconds.

The event followed with a presentation from Jess Clayton of West Yorkshire Police about drugs and County Lines which was attended by PCSO Rachel Crossland, and Constituency Support officer for Kim Leadbeater MP Clare Black.

There was more...

let's wrap it up...

Around 20 plus young people from our Youth Hub attended and participated in this discussion.

We finished the evening with youth club activities of table tennis, pool, crafts, music and cooked pasta for everyone to eat.

Give us a break will you!

The Game Changerz currently work in schools with extended alternative provisions and (PRU’s) working with secondary school-aged students, predominately aged 11-16. Most of the students come from homes hovering around the poverty line and are at risk of offending. Because of this a lot of our students present behavioural issues e.g. anxiety, self-esteem, stress, low mood, anger, and social exclusion, but this is often a mask for bigger issues.


The intervention ran by the team, delivers an inspirational project that not only gives the students a ‘break’ but helps to raise their confidence and aspirations; build resilience, establish positive relationships and other important life skills. Through the power of sports and recreational activities, this will truly change lives. Activities such as go-karting, mountain biking, climbing and wide games were the most popular activities the students chose, alongside more traditional games such as football, rugby and basketball and other sports and activities.

“Overall, our project aims to build relationships amongst these young people. A lot of them struggle to communicate with others on a normal basis and the different activities will help to build confidence in doing this.”


“As well as developing community skills, the behaviour will change and enables positivity e.g. we want our project to bring marginalized students out of social exclusion, empowering them to positively transform their lives and use this as a break from reality.” Company Owner, Tony.
