Activities focussed on our four HeadStart target areas:

  • Low Hill, The Scotlands and Bushbury South, where the main programme was led by our partners WV10 Consortium

  • Springfield, Heath Town, Old Heath and Eastfield, in partnership with Black Country YMCA

  • Bilston East, in partnership with Gazebo Theatre

  • All Saints, Blakenhall, Parkfields, and Ettingshall, in partnership with Black Country YMCA

There were lots of other HeadStart-funded activities too, organised through a range of wonderful voluntary sector organisations, and all shared with young people and parents through our ‘What’s On’ guide and our FaceBook, Twitter and Instagram pages, as well as through posters, flyers and
