In early 2012, Aspire & Succeed were successful in winning votes from the public for a project to offer its students and youth group members opportunities to take part in a series of trips and activities during school holidays.

Backed by the local Neighbourhood Policing team for our ongoing work in the area, we were able to offer a cohort of children and young people a chance to engage in organised activities when schools closed for the half-term holidays and cuts in local youth provision meant there were very few places to go.
