Re Charge - Solent Youth Action

Tuesdays 10am - 2pm during term time

ReCharge is a supported volunteer scheme for young people aged 13-25. Based in Eastleigh, it provides a range of opportunities to engage in horticulture, conservation & construction based activities.

The supportive team are also there to guide and advise our young people in a range of areas from job searching, CV writing and interview skills through to other life skills like sexual health, budgeting and well-being. They are there to support young people to increase their confidence and engage in positive activities within the community.

We specialise in supporting disadvantaged young people with mental health issues, learning disabilities and those who are disengaged, but welcome young people throughout the community who are unemployed or looking for work experience.

This project is a conservation based project. It is based within a woodland and has areas for learning construction. As such, it is considered a working site, and is not suitable for wheelchair use. There is also no disabled toilet.

This project is suited to young people who enjoy getting their hands dirty, building things, destroying things, and learning practical skills in a supported environment. Steel toe capped boots are a requirement for this project (which can be supplied if required).
