Contraception box

It is very important to ensure young people are being informed about sexual health throughout the county and since CYPN’s Sexual Health training sessions we now secured a contraception display box which displays all types of contraception available to young people. This resource is now available to all affiliated clubs on loan in order to deliver sexual health sessions within your club. Contact CYPN offices on 01604 624611 to loan the contraception display box today.

Operation Christmas Child

Young people from Youth Inspired projects this month have been busy building shoes boxes to send to young people overseas for Christmas. Members have sourced small gifts from local charity shops, and well know discount stores to make up a box for a young person overseas, these boxes have include toiletries, stationary, pens, pencils, a significant toy and small fun items along with a tube of sweets. Each box also included a note from the young people giving some details of the youth club and themselves.

Youth Inspired - Notivate group

December 2014

Members of Grange Park Youth Club have completed the writing and recording of a song ‘Over Coming Bulling’ they have been working with a charity called Notivate who have supported them with this. They spent an enjoyable day at the Stables theatre recording their song and making a short film to go with it. The song has a powerful message in overcoming being bullied. Recently Anne Burnett, High Sheriff of Northamptonshire visited the group to learn how they were inspired to write the song and how they will use the film to inform other young people that they do not have to put up with a bully. All of the members of the group are working on a bronze arts award to enable them to be credited for the skills learnt and their hard work and commitment to this project.

This project is one of many that Youth Inspired facilitates in Northamptonshire. If you would like to learn more about similar project contact
