BBGC Emergency fun

PLEASE HELP US SUPPORT THE YOUNG PEOPLE IN OUR CARE.

We provide valuable support to vulnerable young people and do not receive funding from local or national government, all our support comes from donations, fundraising and grants.

The team are currently working above and beyond to keep group sizes to a minimum, whilst complying with government guidelines, however session numbers are at record highs, the support we receive from Warburtons and Greggs with food is invaluable to our cause but more help is needed.

Please help us to continue by caring for us so we can continue caring for them!

Give a Home

As part of our helping the young homeless of Burnley, BBGC is embarking on a new project to purchase a house for the use of young people from the area who have found themselves homeless but a currently in a transitional period of their lives, most commonly between the ages of 16-21 years when some support services no longer class them as child and other do not yet class them as an adult.

This period of time is never easy for any young person, you want to be able to take control of your own life but are still held back, is this fair? Unfortunately there is not time for us to discuss this topic as things need to change now, and with our Give-a-Home campaign hopefully we will be able to do just that.

Property in our local area can go for as little as £20 – £30k for a two up two down, the modernisation and works then needed to allow the property to be fit for multiple occupancy can then begin and very quickly and for a lot less then a person would be a drain on other government and non government services we can not only secure them a place to live but a place to call home.

Why not help us today and place a bid?

Spend a Penny Appeal

Help us raise funds to refurbishing our existing toilet facilities, the club has gone through drastic changes over the last 18 months, the place is now a place of safety and comfort for all our 372 members aged between 5 – 19 years, one of the areas the members have been asking for is new toilet facilities s they are outdated, old fashioned and not very serviceable, help them spend a penny by dontaing all your old change.

BBGC members voted N0 1

Junior Member of the year and Senior Member of the year by LABGC throughout all the  other youth organisations, despite 16 months ago the future of the organisation looking very rocky the organisation has gone from strength to strength, the membership has quadrupled and the strategy for the next three years is to create #lancashiresoldestyouthcharity and #lancashiresnumberoneforyouth How are we going to achieve this, with your help and support, working very closely with local schools, colleges and business to deliver a one stop shop for all the community, “big numbers move big mountains” 

Both members are over the moon with their awards and have both seen tough times over the last 12 months but have conquered and achieved masses with the help and support from the BBGC team.
