Worth Unlimited Huddersfield engages local young people through two very distinct projects; That Reading Thing and Lowerhouses Friday Night Youth Work.

Lowerhouses Friday Night Youth Work

"My name is Wendy Marsden and I live in Lowerhouses. I am a youth worker with Worth Unlimited (Huddersfield), which is based at Longley and Lowerhouses Community Church."

"I work at the church on a Friday night. We started doing youth work at The Lounge in January 2011 then moved to the church building last December because the facilities were better – bigger premises etc. I have been involved with working with young people from the Ashenhurst estate in the last year – including a graffiti project at the skate park – and now these young people join us on a Friday."

"Basically what happens on a Friday night is we run activities such as pool, table tennis and Wii games, we also have crafts and sometimes we just sit and talk. We have about 15 regulars – boys and girls - who attend and their ages range from 11 to 14. There are five regular helpers."

"From time to time we hold Worth events funded by Kirklees Council at the church, for example, last Easter we held a few crafts mornings when the kids had a great time designing their own T-shirts and making Easter baskets. We have also held events to mark Valentine’s Day, Spring Bank Holiday and Christmas."

"We are hoping to organise new activities for the future – maybe taking the kids bowling or on day trips but this is subject to us obtaining the necessary funding."
