    Gloom to Bloom

    Our project is entitled gloom to bloom as we are aspiring to take the drab exterior of Renfrew High and transform it into something colourful, bright and creative in order to reflect the young minds of Renfrew. We hope that, by creating a sheltered seating area, the moral, motivation and mental health of young people will be improved. Introducing bike racks will encourage more active lifestyles and painted murals could be used to reflect the schools values. Our project could turn Renfrew High, which is arguably the heart of the town, into a much warmer and welcoming place.

    Renfrewshire Carers Centre Young Carers Project

    Young Carers dedicate their childhood to caring for a loved one who has an illness or disability; as a result, they miss opportunities and events with their peers, which leaves them feeling isolated and alone. Young Carers prioritise the health and well being of their family before themselves . This often results in them being stressed, anxious, losing sleep and struggling to concentrate or attend school. Respite breaks will give Young Carers the opportunity to have fun,de-stress, make new friends and try new experiences, which will build their confidence. “When you take care of other all the time it gets hard to put your own need first”

    Making healthy choices within the B.A.M.E. community

    This will be done with workshops on healthy eating, encouraging young people to be involved in swimming and sports, There also needs to be information on making healthy choices rather than 'diets'. This has to be a lifestyle change and not a quick fix. there will also be information and participation in exercise not just group exercise but activities such as walking to places or climbing stairs. Exercise can be free it doesn't have to cost anything at all. We want to involve young people in this as being part of a team educating each other is a better way to learn than one person telling them what to do.
