Brunswick Girls Group Residential
At the beginning of the summer holiday 2016, the Brunswick Older Girls' Group planned and went on a residential trip to Shining Cliff. Over
our three day trip the girls had planned various activities including: forest skills and a craft workshop, a campfire evening, team obstacle course, archery and zip-wiring! The girls were able to
spend time together outside of their normal environment, having a meal out in the local town, exploring the woods and caves; building better relationships with one another and working together to
organise their days. Throughout our time on the residential, workers were able to see how the girls' relationships were developing and how everyone participated, supported and encouraged one another
throughout the activities and 'living' arrangements. The trip went smoothly with the great help of the girls, fun was had by all and it wasn't long after the trip that the girls were asking to plan
Grove Village Lads experience the Outdoor Life
In July 2015, two M13 workers took a group of seven young men from Grove Village camping for two nights in Delamere Forest to get experience before they embarked on the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award
Scheme. After weeks of planning and preparation, the group enjoyed swinging through the Go Ape high ropes course and an afternoon of fishing as well experiencing cooking and sleeping in the
great outdoors. Despite the typically English weather, they all survived their adventure and had a great time!
Iconoclast and Rewind Residentials
We have also been involved in a number of other residential experiences, including work with teenage mums, an 'Iconoclast' residential (a
dialogue based residential which explored different stereotypes of ethnic groups and aimed to create strategies to break the negative stereotyping down), and a 'Rewind anti-racism residential' which
gathered together young people from all over the country to explore the impact of racism and to deconstruct racist ideologies.
