Tarner Community Project was established in 1996 as a provider of of school services.
The Project works to alleviate the effects of poverty and disadvantage within the local community. Its residents are effected by low incomes, unemployment, and high rates of mental and physical ill health. We work with children and young people aged 4 -19 and their parents, carers and families. We provide high quality childcare through an after school club and holiday play schemes. Vulnerable 11-19 year olds enjoy free youth clubs and trips, sport, and health and educational activities. We offer one-to-one support to those at risk or in need and also family support on request.
We work to form sustainable partnerships with other agencies and residents to promote the wellbeing and stability of the families and community around us. We work with our service users to ensure their voices are heard, that our own and other services meet their needs and so that they are able to access and make the most of opportunities. We also offer volunteer opportunities.
The Project became an unincorporated charity in 2014 and changed its name to Tarner Community Project (formally Tarnerland Children and Young People’s Project). The key focus remains to offer essential services to children and young people in the community.
