ABOUT US

Wonderful Things provides innovative extra-curricular activities to children, delivered out of school hours, but within the safe environment of primary schools and local venues. Project Managers ensure a particularly wide spectrum of themes to the activities, so that children are inspired and motivated to engage in challenging activities that they would not usually have access to.

Activities range from the arts (eg: Pirate Dance Day, Theatre Day, being a DJ) to science and technology (eg: Lego Day, Forensic Science Day, Skills Day) to the outdoors (eg: Forest Day, Crazy Sports Day) the practical (Baking Day, Journalism Workshops) and the unusual (Parliamentary Day, Didgeridoo Day!) These opportunities inspire the children and feed into their social and academic attainment, and the impact of this has been commented on by both parents and educators.

ABOUT US

We are a group of local volunteers who have been supporting many members of the local community, predominantly Asian female ladies, with their personal, social and welfare development needs and providing an opportunity for them to meet and discuss their issues. We have about 3-5 volunteers actively engaging with the local community. As more women have gained awareness of our services there has been greater demand and we are now seeking to formally establish the group with a Constitution and as a NOT FOR PROFIT organisation for the benefits of the local community.

We are active in Pennine and Central Lancashire as well as North Greater Manchester and are keen to expand our services and provision to a wider area.

We have worked mainly with those in an unpaid carer’s role as well as supported those with confidence issues to develop themselves to become more active in their communities and seek employment and economic activity opportunities.
