North Wales Superkids

North Wales Superkids
North Wales Superkids’ works to improve the lives of children and young people in North Wales who are socially or economically disadvantaged, whether through financial hardship, domestic violence, health, substance misuse or other socioeconomic factors that exclude them from society. In 2003, North Wales Superkids were awarded a group MBE, and in 2014 Margaret Williams, founder, was personally awarded an MBE for her work with disadvantaged children and families in North Wales.
 
North Wales Superkids runs four different projects to help local children and young people up to the age of 25:
 
The Community Foundation in Wales awarded a grant of £750 from the Denbighshire Community Endowment Fund to support one of the Superkids’ projects, Crafty Hands. 
 
The project began as a small crafts club held in the rural village of Bodelwyddan, where children are often socially isolated and do not have access to age-appropriate activities. Initially these sessions simply provided an opportunity for children to experience some general, age-appropriate crafts. Soon the children started asking the group to provide other styles of arts and crafts, and in the 5 years since its beginnings Crafty Hands has opened a second club in Rhuddlan and grown from a basic crafts group to a range of widely varied sessions, allowing local children to experience a range of different activities and to develop a wealth of different skills.
 
Superkids’ intention is that these sessions will also ultimately foster higher aspirations and equip the children with useful skills, increasing opportunities for school attainment and work prospects, and reducing social deprivation. Feedback and monitoring by organisation has shown the children who attended Crafty Hands sessions to have grown dramatically in a number of ways; confidence has increased significantly amongst those who attended, children have a renewed interest in learning and a fresh interest in the arts, and participants have gained new skills in leadership and good citizenship.
