THE STORY SO FAR
Here at QPG, which is a non-profit community organisation run by a board of local residents and volunteers, we thrive on providing free activities and classes that cater to the demands of children within the local community.
Our main aim is to improve our community and offer the youth opportunities that they lack so that they have a positive outlet.
We have our own youth champions group who help us to decide what lessons and activities we introduce, proudly run over 7 days a week.
Children’s favourites, such as our weekly football sessions, enable children of all technical ability to participate with their peers and further their skills through our coaching sessions. This promotes important qualities like teamwork and resilience, but is also a good form of physical exercise, which all children need.
Our other focusses for this new term are nutritional workshops and healthy cooking. Also, given the different backgrounds of the children in the community, education is an area we also strive to help promote so that all kids get a fair opportunity to access additional learning.
As was the case when we began our journey in 2016, our main aim for QPG is to add to our community by giving local youth a positive outlet by providing opportunities that they currently lack, and this has proven to be a huge success, with numbers growing weekly.

On Friday 2nd April 2021, we celebrated Five years since QPGs inception, and we are extremely proud of how much, as a community organisation, we have grown since the start. We look forward to building on our community partnerships and sessions, whilst continuing our work through the pandemic.
It is a difficult time globally, but QPG remains online and is busy focussing on isolated food deliveries throughout the Spring and Summer terms.
It is a huge achievement, and one that we are proud to celebrate with all of our community partners and official community supporters.
