ABOUT KIDS IN COMMUNICATION

Kicsters is a digital pop-up youth club for young people aged 10 to 18. Our mission is to deliver local community programmes that meet the needs of young people and empower them to learn new skills, gain knowledge, lead positive social action projects, achieve and improve emotional and social capabilities.

We have established a strong reputation for delivering high quality skills development programmes for young people from predominantly disadvantaged and low aspiration backgrounds.

We work with local community partners and young people to ensure all our programmes meet their changing needs. We use this insight to develop partnerships to create, co-create and deliver innovative, accessible, funded opportunities for young people to learn new skills, access opportunities and empower them to engage and play an active role within their community.

 
 

WHAT PARENTS SAY

Case Studies

When E first attended Kicsters he found it very overwhelming. This is due to him being on the Autistic Spectrum. E would only stay in the corridor. Ben was great with him and made him feel at ease, he said he would do what he could to make him feel comfortable. Ben is extremely patient and he has great bonds with the children. I feel that this has helped E come out of his comfort zone massively.

E will now go straight into the room now when he goes to Kicksters. This is a massive development and it goes to show that each child looked at as an individual. During the summer break, when E attended, he went into the main hall where there were unfamiliar faces and loud music. This was a big achievement for E.

I feel this club is invaluable to E and has helped his confidence grow in a big way. As a parent I feel this is extremely important for E for his social skills, he has even joined in some of the games which is fantastic.

He looks forward to attending Kicksters every week!

When we moved to Darlaston, I was keen for my son T to make friends within our community.

T struggled with confidence due to his speech, which made it all the more difficult for him but Kicksters was amazing! They engaged with him and through the activities he enjoyed, his confidence grew.

To see him take part in video interviews, discussing community issues, filled me with joy.

He now has a safe place where he and his friends can have fun, learn new skills and connect with the community,
