Gateshead Youth Forum
After working with WinG for nearly nine years, Anita Burns knows more than anyone what WinG has to offer.
As a youth and community worker Anita was responsible for supporting a number of youth groups, including Gateshead Youth Forum, who involved WinG when organising a mountain bike expedition in Kielder as part of a personal development and team building exercise.
Northumbria Police Cadets
WinG has worked together with Northumbria Police Cadets to facilitate their The Duke of Edinburgh’s Bronze and Silver Award Expeditions since 2012.
What started with 18 police cadets aged 14 to 18 years has become nearly 200 each year completing their expeditions and developing essential life skills whilst learning about different sections of the police force and taking part in community events as part of their volunteer placement with Northumbria Police.
Cadets are expected to plan, train and then complete the requisite expeditions. WinG provide the experience, expertise and equipment required to support cadets with planning, training and completing the expedition.
