Applicant: Art and Soul Tribe CIC 
Title: Mission I’m Possible
Area: Flintshire 
Amount Requested: £2,500.00

Project Outline:

We plan to engage Flintshire's hardest to reach, disengaged young people through our 'Mission I'm Possible' project by engaging with them from the outset and involving them with the design of the project within the parameters we set in order to achieve overall objectives. Working in this way has proven to be successful at retention, as the young people have an element of control and pride in the project from the offset.

Our 2019 pilot of the 'Mission I'm Possible' Project was a great success working around subjects such as County Lines, Knife Crime, CSE (Child Sexual Exploitation) and general disengagement and have been asked to look at developing our project further specifically to try and combat things such as low self-esteem and self-worth, dealing with ACES (Adverse Childhood Experiences), mental health difficulties, anger management and overcoming challenges around learning styles and conflict management, as there has been an increase in exclusions relating to carrying weapons and drugs, so a lot of our target pupils are involved or soon could be with county lines.

Through the proper and professional use of martial arts our social mission is to help improve lives in the local community, reduce the number of victims that there are to domestic abuse and crimes of aggression. We also work very closely with the children in the local community through sessions in school and after school to improve their fitness, well-being and life skills to make them less likely to become the victim of bullying or street crime and to help prevent them turning to crime, being “on the streets” and in turn making them better citizens as they grow to be our future adults.

Our sessions have been able to improve the essential life skills in children will dramatically increase their likelihood of doing better in school, improving their grades, going onto better things in life and ultimately being better adults and citizens to the country.

Applicant: Nannerch Community Council
Title: Play for All
Area: Flintshire 
Amount Requested: £2,500.00 

Project Outline:  

Nannerch Community Council (NCC) has 1 existing playground for its 500 residents.  Over the years there has been little consideration for the future safeguarding of the facilities and as individual items come to the end of their expected life (not necessarily the end of their useful life) they are removed and with no thought of any replacement

We expect that our project to renovate our children’s play area will help contribute towards the Police and Crime Plan objectives by providing an enhanced quality of life through providing an alternative to crime by providing a safe area for young children. 

We have a good working relationship with PCSO 3928 Connor Freel who has documented the difficulties Nannerch has had with both drug dealing and drug taking have been reported throughout the village and near the school and we are fortunate to have regular mobile Police patrols  in evenings and overnight since February 2019. 

The drug issue took many residents by surprise in our rural village with residents being unequipped and unsure on how to tackle this issue and our PCSO has been invaluable with his advice and assistance.  This project will help to address the issues we have recently experienced.
