Space 2021 is getting ready to blast off – with all finishing touches being finalised ahead of the launch of the summer programme.
Space 2021 will potentially look a little different to previous years depending on how restrictions are eased. The programme will begin on 26 July and end on 27 August and will offer a variety of activities for smaller numbers of participants. All activities will adhere to Government Covid-19 health and safety guidelines to ensure the safety of all participants.
The summer programme brings together public, voluntary and private sector organisations to provide support for potentially vulnerable young people to help increase skills, improve health and wellbeing and create opportunities, with an additional aim of reducing levels of anti-social behaviour.
Staffordshire Commissioner for Police, Fire & Rescue and Crime, Ben Adams said: ‘Space 2021 is a great opportunity to give something back to the young people of Staffordshire who have given up so much during the last year.
‘The positive activities that Space provides are sure to be highly sought after as the detrimental impact of lockdown on young people’s physical and mental health has become clear for all to see.
‘These activities are all about providing an opportunity for Staffordshire Police and partners to engage with young people who may be going through a difficult time to help nurture, support and develop them.’
Details of activities, including how to book and guidance around Covid-19, will be soon be available on the Space website, www.staffordshirespace.uk. Please keep checking to see what activities are being added for your area.
