Bringing Back Betty’s Hut
Projects4Change has spent 2019 listening to the needs of local young people through regular detached youth work sessions around Cowgate. The overwhelming response was that local people want to have more projects, activities, and help to get ahead in life.
That is why we are bringing back Betty’s Hut, the new Betty’s Hut and garden will support the running ofyoung people’s group work sessions, intergenerational work, volunteering, training, and enterprise. As well as be a base for trips and fun activities for local young people. The new space will help to build upon the potential of local people by letting them lead the way in creating solutions for their own community.
“My Dad used to go to Betty’s Hut they used to do loads of activities for young people like open days and treasure hunts”. (Zoe, 12yrs)
