It can also include spending time in local parks or other areas young people are known to spend time away from the Youth Centre, during the pandemic outreach became more targeted and involved meeting young people 1:1 or in small groups in places they feel comfortable. We adapted music, employability and fitness sessions to an outdoor delivery model by using two bicycles and trailers to transport any equipment.

We are pleased to be supporting Coram’s Fields, more specifically supporting a Senior Youth Worker on the Inner Strength Project. We believe that Coram’s Field has demonstrated that their work is meaningful and fits with our commitment to making a positive and significant difference to people’s lives.
Coram’s Fields are right in the ‘sweet spot’ for the William Wates Memorial Trust. They have great people and are deeply embedded in their local community. These are the foundation stones for high impact work with young people in need of support.
Many young people are floundering as a result of the disruption caused by the pandemic. Some have given up entirely, feeling that they have no future. The Tom ap Rhys Pryce Memorial Trust exists in part, to help disadvantaged young people to achieve their potential. Coram's Fields provides a life-line through their Youth Centre and mentoring programmes to help keep these young people on the right track. Their expertise in providing support, both actual and virtual, is vital in these difficult times, which is why Tom's Trust has no hesitation in giving financial backing to Coram's Fields.
We are proud to support the vital work of Coram’s Fields Youth Programme. It plays a vital role in the community and changes lives for the better. Coram’s Fields Girls Group gives young women a safe space to build self-confidence and new skills. During Covid, it has been an indispensable source of both practical and emotional support.
