Much of the work that SRYP does is funded by fixed term funding and grants. Projects usually run for a finite length of time, then we move on to something new.

However we are still very proud of the work we have done in the past and the benefit it has brought young people, much of it still continuing. From this page you can access pages of our previous projects.

National Citizen Service, (NCS) is a government initiative to give young people a purposeful transition from school to college, work and adult life. It comprised team building activities and social enterprise projects. SRYP were part of a consortium running a pilot project in 2011/2012

The From Different Parts Project partly funded by Heritage Lottery encouraged young people to look at the diverse origins of many of the population of West Somerset.

Company of Voices was an intergenerational project bringing together young and old with a cultural and musical theme.

West Huntspill Play area; working with young people and members of the community including the Parish council, the Stronger Communities team helped to improve the local play area.

Young Mums; The volunteering team helped young single parents from Williton show that they were valued members of the community.

Social Enterprise project; SRYP was chosen as a partner in an innovative scheme to develop a social enterprise qualification for young people.

Reactions and Reflections; Lauren Cullimore helped a group of young people work through their emotional problems through the medium of photography.

Activity Programme; The Positive Activities Team organise a range of activities including a revival of the 60s TV show, "It's a Knockout"

The Health and Wellbeing Project takes support and information to individuals and groups on a range of health related issues.

Realising Ambition Realising Ambition, headed up by Catch-22, is a UK-wide programme investing £25million in outstanding projects that have a strong track record or have already been proven to work in helping young people fulfill their potential and avoid the pathways into offending.
