New Shelter for The Canterbury & District Early Years Project
We are delighted to see that the shelter we funded at The Canterbury & District Early Years Project is now up and looking fantastic!
Children should be able to develop their personalities, talents and abilities regardless of ethnicity, culture or religion, home language, family background, learning difficulties, disabilities or gender. At the Canterbury & District Early Years Project, they aim to do everything possible to help children have the best possible start in life.
The Canterbury & District Early Years Project is a long-established, grass-roots organisation working in the Canterbury and coastal communities to provide support services to children and families. The charity offers parenting support programmes, play sessions, short courses, family events, support groups and much more to promote strong family relationships and positive outcomes for children.
It was a pleasure to work with the charity whilst on site at our development, The Riverside at Canterbury. Last year, whilst the pandemic was still rife, The Canterbury District & Early Years Project were looking to build a variety of shelters over their external areas to be able to continue providing activities. Having the capacity to support parents and children outside of their main building was a priority for the charity with social distancing measures still in place at the time.
We are proud to have made this shelter a possibility for those benefitting from the charity’s work. Now these covid-19 measures have been lifted the charity can make use of the shelter to hold bigger events outside in the summer months.
