FYI (Fun, Young and Involved)

Summary of idea

This funding will help cover salary costs for support staff for our Teens Group. We would like at employ another staff member. For group sessions government ratios for people aged 9 - 12 years dictate one adult to eight children and 13 - 18 years, one adult to ten children. At present we have 2 staff with up to 20 children attending each of our groups, but 75% of the children have and additional need ADHD or Autism which makes running the groups very challenging. This has been verified through their registration paperwork. We have started to limit the numbers to 10-15 per session due to these challenges but would like all to be able to attend. At our groups we offer free snacks, e.g. hot dog rolls, beans on toast and a hot drink. This to ensure they have a meal are not going hungry.
