A youth collective for 11 to 16 year olds in Bude North Cornwall. Implementing a new way of looking at youth support by empowering members to run a fun and dynamic project for themselves

About Blend

Siblings Jamie and Kaylie Wright established Blend in January of 2016. Currently operating one evening a week Blend provides a social environment with a range of structured activities. Numbers have rapidly grown with over thirty members regularly participating in the evenings

A new model of youth support...

Blend empowers its members by actively encouraging them to take part in the organisation and running of the group, to make their own choices and decisions, with direction and support when necessary. Giving members this responsibility is key to increasing confidence and life skills

Time to expand...

Blend is ready to expand and needs a larger more permanent space so that the collective can grow – every day of the week. It needs an environment with increased opportunities for learning important life skills, increasing trust and taking on further responsibilities.

Growing Blend...

Blend will become a social enterprise. It will purchase a permanent space and incorporate several self-sustaining and complementary business ideas run by the collective under the tutelage and support of professional adults. These in turn will provide ongoing income and potential profit for expansion.

Blend will be a run by the collective
