Stapleford is crying out for a safe place for our current and next generation. An idea would be a community style family and younger persons centre which hosts a number of things such as breastfeeding cafe; baby sensory; career advice centre; youth groups, which could hold groups such as forest school type activities for younger children and have a safe common room for 8-15 year olds to hang out safely at certain times/evenings/weekends. Revenue after initial expenditure could be gained through community gigs, youth art initiatives ie, creating an art gallery evenings from local and/or young artists, hiring the venue out to activities such as external keep fit organisers, karate clubs, boxing clubs aimed at youths etc. Initiatives involving younger people and those exposed to support groups and supporting them have been proven to lower crime and help support the neighbourhood as a whole. The idea would need to procure a venue and support staff to improve cultural facilities.
