Re:dish – Reddish Youth Voice Project
Since 2014, Re:dish has been working to improve the lives of residents in Reddish and Heaton Norris. In 2021, the ‘Youth Voice Club’ was created to increase engagement from young people and reduce anti-social behaviour by providing a safe space to socialise and develop skills.
The SKylight Community Fund awarded £780, which funded remote outreach work delivered by youth workers from Make a Difference. The youth workers engaged with 30 - 50 young people across Reddish weekly: learning about their interests and discussing topics such as smoking, drinking and safe relationships.
Today, the group is branded “North Reddish Youth Club” following further investment from the Greater Manchester Police Asset Recovery Incentivisation Scheme (ARIS).
The club runs Every Thursday at North Reddish Park Pavilion for young people aged 11 – 15. All activities are free and led by members, including a monthly visit to HideOut Youth Zone.

A… really struggled making friends in Reddish as he doesn’t attend school in the area. This group has changed that, and he lives for his Thursday evening at the club. I have noticed a huge difference in his mood and attitude at home so for me and A.. this group is really important.Reddish Youth Voice Project
