Community First

WAVE has been very fortunate to have the support and guidance of Gary Davies from Community First. Gary has been advising from the start, helping with the structure of a community organisation protocols and funding. WAVE successfully secured the funding enabling the commission of Y Services to complete research to establish what the young people would like/need on Hayling, Gary’s input was invaluable. Gary guided step by step the process required to become a charity which WAVE successfully achieved 11th August 2020. Thankfully, Gary is still supporting WAVE through application for more funding and securing a location for the young people to meet.

Y Services 

Andy Kennedy is a very experienced youth worker and chair of trustees for Y Services and has been with WAVE from the beginning. Andy advised what the modern young person may need and how to move forward. When the idea came about regarding establishing what the young people on Hayling needed/would like through questionnaire Andy was very supportive. WAVE for a while supplied a homework space for the young people, Andy guided us through all the policies and gave a safeguarding talk. In addition, when WAVE applied to become a charity Andy guided us through the Safeguarding Policy and kindly agreed to be WAVE’s Safeguarding Officer. 

Maria Kennedy is the lead for supplying mental health support to the young people and has been very supportive to help bring this to fruition. When COVID restrictions have been lifted the support will be ready.
