Comic Relief Course-Making a Difference for young people

Comic Relief Course - working as part of a team


The Helston Phoenix Project Making a Difference to young people finished on Wednesday 8 March.

Station Manager Keith Stringer and Fire-fighter Mark Skinner took a group of 4 young people to Ocean Bowl on Wednesday to celebrate the end of the course.  They went bowling and had a very enjoyable lunch.

The team were supported during the 6 weeks by Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service, Fire Safety, Road Safety, Devon and Cornwall Police, Internet Safety, and Anti Social behaviour.

Due to bad weather a couple of projects had to be cancelled.  The projects have been paid for and  rearrange with the outside agencies for April and June.

The team would to say a huge thank you to our senior mentor K T, who is studying Psychology and Sociology at Helston College.  K T has been supporting the courses and is providing an overview of the evaluations for our end of grant report.  K T has also been monitoring behaviours so that we can see if we have modified the young people’s behaviours.

The Helston Phoenix Team are inviting the young people to attend a continuation of a further 2 weeks as the young people had a wide and varied project but they did not get a chance to do the Drill and run out the hoses from the appliance.  They will come back for 2 weeks before the Easter holiday.
