NORTH ALLERDALE DEVELOPMENT TRUST EIP NEWSLETTER July 2020 WELCOME TO OUR SUMMER EIP NEWSLETTER: The economic and educational fallout affecting our young people presently and in years to come due to Covid 19 will undoubtedly have a long term effect on many young people’s emotional wellbeing and now more than ever working across the sectors to provide that extra emotional support is vital. 150 “It's hard stopping in, there is no space, no me time and I miss my friends” Young people contacted through digital platforms Throughout the lockdown period NADT have worked tirelessly to get everything in place for EIP to fully return Best Support Staff in September. With the young people and staff safety our Clare Stab top priority. We have carried out a full Covid 19 risk assessment and 60% put systems in place which includes: • Hygiene, cleaning and social distance measures in Young people stated that they place. felt theBirEmSTenUtaSlEheOaFlth had • Separate work areas for each young person with their TbEeCeHn NafOfeLcOteGdY own equipment 40% • Relevant PPE Equipment - including face shields for Young people feeling isolated each young person • Restructuring of sessions to minimise mixing of pupils 26% NADT have engaged with young people throughout the young people feel very anxious lockdown period. Initial feedback from engagement or unsure on returning to showed the majority of young people were coping but as school lockdown progressed many struggled with the restrictions that were in place. 34% The lack of interaction and socialising, mainly with their friends, has had a big impact, effecting both their mental rise in Gaming and physical wellbeing. Many stating that as time has progressed they have started to feel isolated and although for some the extra time spent with family has been beneficial a lack of their own time and space had become frustrating. As lockdown has eased returning to ‘normality’ has thrown up new problems and worries with new restrictions, routines and structure being put in place. “Thank you for contacting me, it has made my day”

Summer EIP Sessions To continue supporting our young people NADT have been able to offer summer EIP Upcycle sessions, which has been made possible by continued support from our fantastic funders and additional support from Persimmon Homes. The sessions give young people the opportunity to talk through how the lockdown and Covid has affected them, while having fun and interaction with other young people. The sessions build on the young people’s resilience and looks to improve their emotional wellbeing by experiencing and discussing the new routines and rules that Covid 19 has enforced, while being in a safe and relaxed environment. This in turn allows the transition back into school/provisions and social interaction to be a more positive and easier experience. We have been overwhelmed by the response from young people wanting to take up this opportunity, initially running three days a week, within less than an hour we had reached capacity and had to add extra day, with young people travelling from Workington, Maryport, Brampton, Silloth and Aspatria. EIP Success ‘I’m now in college with good practical skills thanks to my past A positive experience during lockdown has been re- experience with you I’m going on to engaging with young people who have completed EIP and level 2 joinery when I return' gone on to have positive outcomes. 50 young people that had previously attended EIP ‘I completed some work experience completed their school education this year. last year, feedback from the business said I had done really well 50% were at risk of permanent exclusion. and I should look at an 85% have gone on to complete their school apprenticeship which was only possible because of the workshop education we did with you helping to build my confidence and people skills and 50% were referred for emotional or learning obviously the practical stuff’ reasons which was felt could affect their ‘My grades have improved and I’m achievement in school doing joinery when I get to go to college.

Primary EIP Our Primary EIP welcomed the return of Thomlinson Junior and new additions St Cuthbert’s primary school. The imagination and enthusiasm from both schools was fantastic as usual and some beautiful and colourful chairs were created and taken home, although the creation of a baby Yoda chair did test our EIP staffs creative skills  #RESPECT Every young person we work with is given respect, within each issue we will shine a light on a young person we feel deserves recognition and our special #RESPECT. For this addition our #respect goes to a young lady who first started with us on our EIP Upcycle and due to progressing well both on the programme and back in school was put forward for a cycle of EIP Media. The change of environment and people meant a shaky start but she soon excelled and showed enthusiasm and a keenness to learn showing particular skills when it came to directing! EIP staff have watched this young lady go from strength to strength improving in so many areas especially her communication skills which in turn has made her feel much more at ease when interacting with other young people. Throughout the lockdown period she has kept in touch with staff participating with the daily challenges and standing her ground when staff suggested two new-born calves that had been born on the farm should be named after them  She has also volunteered her free time to return to our summer sessions to restore furniture and raise some much needed funds for the programme. This is why she deserves our #RESPECT NADT Upcycle EIP NADT Media EIP NORTH ALLERDALE DEVELOPMENT TRUST NEWSLETTER
