There are three Triple Ts clubs in Southend which are located on the main estates; Balmoral, Queensway and Woodgrange. These are considered to be the most disadvantaged areas of Southend-on-Sea. Since the Triple Ts project began, we have worked with over 350 children between the ages of 8-12.
Programme sessions are specifically designed to help build confidence within the young people, provide opportunity for community action and improve wellbeing.
Each week, children are encouraged to interact with other club members through a range of planned activities and at the core of this is increased confidence and self-belief.
Improving Mental and Physical Wellbeing
Sessions are designed to be active, to develop personal skills and introduce healthier ways of living for the children. We are always looking for new types of activities to help improve both the physical and mental wellbeing of the Triple Ts.
Participating in Positive Community Action
Community project sessions are planned, helping children to lead action on issues important to them. We also encourage community involvement, inviting groups and different organisations to support. With a focus on children being involved in the wider community it helps to develop a sense of belonging and raises aspirations.
