The Thanet Youth Network, made up of some 30 organisations and freelancers who work with young people, has been awarded £11,200 from Thanet District Council as part of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

The Thanet Youth Network was formed in 2021 during the pandemic lockdown as a collaboration between arts organisations based in Thanet working with young people, and a community of support for practitioners facing an unprecedented crisis in young people’s mental health and wellbeing.

Hosted by Pie Factory Music, the Thanet Youth Network encompasses organisations and freelance practitioners working with young people across a range of creative arts, sports and youth-centred activities and programmes.

The Network aims to address the issue of organisations competing for ever-shrinking funding pots through better collaboration and increasing the knowledge, understanding and confidence of the youth sector workforce in Thanet with regular meetings and training events.

With new funding, the Thanet Youth Network is now recruiting a part-time network administrator who will work closely with the core group responsible for steering the network, made up of representatives from Pie Factory Music, Margate Creative Land Trust, Discovery Planet, Oasis Domestic Abuse Service, and Quench Gallery.

Deadline for applications for the role is 5pm Thursday 25 July.

      Perhaps some education would mean you could perhaps write ‘real world’ in a different style to ‘Mrs Pink’ and your other characters…. Try it, you might like it…
