The Harrow Club have been working with our local traveller community for the last 8 years. We run a very unique project with them focusing on their academic achievements through support at a homework club for children and young people age 8-15 currently. Alongside the homework we have also focused on helping the young people with their personal development and integration into the local community and taking advantage of the other opportunities that the local community has for them. Over the time we have been working with them we have seen success both academically and in terms of their personal development whether it be improving grades or encouraging them to participate within the wider provision that the Harrow Club offers for young people. Through the constant development of this project we have also previously run holiday programmes and residentials with the traveller community.
The Traveller homework club is currently being funded by the Peter Stebbings Memorial Charity who rescued this valuable project this year.
