New Group Project

Join our team to reach new communities in the Eastern Region

Thursday, 15 November 2018

The New Groups Project in the Eastern Region was launched in June 2017, and is jointly funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport. This three-year project will see us grow new groups for young people aged 10-18 in Norwich, Suffolk & Cambridgeshire.

We are now seeking to expand our team for the next phase of this exciting project.

Case Study: Increasing and Widening Participation in Existing Districts

Tuesday, 7 August 2018

Within the New Groups Project in the Eastern Region, we’ve been working with three existing districts to help them to increase and widen participation by open groups for new age groups and in new areas. In Norwich and Lowestoft, existing open groups have been supported to separate and tailor their activities for Elfins and Pioneers, whilst in Cambridge a new Pioneer group has been opened in the expanding northern part of the city. By providing age-specific programmes close to where people live, this has helped to increase and widen participation in all three areas.
