The new youth worker will promote community cohesion amongst young people and the wider community in Rotherham West wards of Masbrough, Henley and Ferham and engage the young people in positive activities that develop confidence and skills both in the evenings and weekends.
The Youth Forum was established in 2009 by a group of young people aged 13 to 25 with the aim of bringing young people together from different communities and promote community cohesion through sports and education. The forum supports young people to have a voice and engage them in sport and health activities, citizenship and volunteering. The group gives members the opportunity to develop a variety of skills through organising events, undertaking a leadership course, as well as the opportunity to visit parliament. Some of the members have had training to become peer educators and delivered anti-racism training to other young people within the community, which helps to promote them as a positive role model.
