Changing Lives

Red Star

outh Flintshire Active Communities
Team Outreach Roadshow

Our aim is to promote better understanding of all the facets of the community, and all its people regardless of race, faith & age.

By involving the Youth of Flintshire in every-day life, showing them that the community is theirs too, that they can help shape it, make it a better and safer place in which they want to be, we hope to reach this goal.

Working together brings people closer and help them understand each other. This applies to all generations, create respect between them, and make a better place to live in for all.

The Children & Young People's Plan 2011-2014

The Flintshire Children and Young People’s Partnership is working to improve outcomes for children, young people and families in Flintshire.
Within this framework, it has reached Phase 3 of its plan and is launching a consultation so that everyone can have their say on the matter.

To that purpose, we have made available details of the Partnership's work so far, so that those who want to give their views can get a good appreciation of the aims of the Partnership, and help shape its future.

To find out more, have a look at this Plan Consultation flyer for an overall idea, while the "An Outcomes Focus" document, both in English and Welsh, explains in more details the existence of the Partnership, lays out its "Core Aims and Broad AIms", and much more.

In addition, the Partnership wants to ensure that all sections of the community have an opportunity to have their say, and would be grateful if you could help to do this by completing this monitoring form. Please tick the relevant boxes.

New Colours For the -Factor

Flintshire Neighbourhood Watch Association has renewed some of the visual aspects of the exterior of the -Factor vehicle to include the new
-Factor logo, unique to FNWA.

Calais Smith, Youth Project Administrator and coordinator of the design challenge for the unit said about the new logo:

I believe that the new branding of the -Factor logo will attract more youths, and being teamed with the -Factor Mobile Unit, help deter a greater number of youths away from crime and towards better activities such as the ‘Get Hooked on Fishing’ project. It will be recognised and remembered and therefore approached. It has been a pleasure working and co-ordinating part of this project and I wish it all the best in the future.

Y-Factor New Logo This project has shown such potential and is a fantastic opportunity to engage the youth of Flintshire to educate them and deter them from crime. I feel the -Factor Mobile Unit is a useful tool in reaching and supporting young people and with its new branding logo will be even more successful in doing so in the future.

Carl Sargeant, councillor for the Golftyn Ward in Connah's Quay

Inspector Martin Best, of North-Wales Police, declared:

The -Factor is an excellent initiative to engage with the youth of Flintshire and is a valuable asset in preventing young people becoming involved in crime.

Get Hooked On Fishing
GHOF logo

Do you like a bit - or a lot - of fishing? It's fun, it's time spent with your friends, so it must be time well spent!

Get Hooked On Fishing is now in Wales.

So whether you are "hooked on fishing" already or want to know more, have a look here.

There's information on the project, a survey that you can fill online (and see the results), photos, links to other websites that all have to do with fishing.

So "Get Hooked on Fishing" or "get hooking"!
