Police & Crime Commissioner’s grant for Youth Work

Dyfodol Powys Futures are delighted to get a grant from Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner’s Community Funding to support our programme ‘Reaching Out’.

“Reaching Out/Estyn Allan helps to build positive futures with vulnerable young men 16 – 25years, for whom other sources of support have failed.  They are at a critical point in their lives, moving into adulthood.   We give intensive one to one support out in their communities, wherever feels best for them: focusing on their lives and what matters to them.”

Tell us about Touch Trust

I am a dad to a daughter with severe physical and neurological disabilities and where we live in mid Wales we are very limited as to what activities we have suitable and very little is available.

Touch Trust is a really great place to go…

Touch Trust is a really great place to go where Rosie and Heidi (the session leaders) engage and encourage everybody in the group to participate.

Makes a Sunday for my daughter and myself…

We try and go to Howey and Knighton when we can – these groups make a Sunday for my daughter and myself. 

Tell us about Touch Trust

Touch Trust for our autistic son is a safe creative space, where he can participate in a positive encouraging environment.  It is a great outlet for his emotions – happy or sad!

Touch Trust – a safe, creative environment…

We look forward to each session. The practitioners are always happy & mindful of each participant’s sensory & behavioural issues & adapt their responses, music & musical instruments for each child, as the parent I am so grateful for this.

We look forward to each session – the practitioners are always happy & adapt for each child…

Which is why year after year we keep coming to all the sessions we can!
