Latest Projects: Helping young people's mental health.

Focus is a Leicester-based young people’s charity who strive to transform young people’s lives through inspiring and empowering projects and volunteering opportunities that improve local communities.

With the help of a £15,000 grant from Wooden Spoon Leicestershire, the Breathing Space project has come to life – the allotment is a place where young people who are experiencing mental health issues can come to build their confidence, self esteem and resilience away from pressures of school, social media and the city.

Are you tough enough for The Grim Challenge?

The name "Grim" challenge just about sums up this muddy, obstacle race across the army tank training ground in Aldershot (very near to our national office).

This is your opportunity to get cold, wet and muddy as you run, walk, wade and crawl over a course so tough the army prefers to drive over it in a tank! So, if you feel that this is up your street and you'd like to raise funds for Wooden Spoon then please sign up here

Have fun this September

Join us at one of our local events. Check out our events calendar where you can find out details and book your place. We look forward to seeing you.

Please note that we are following careful guidance to ensure we are running events that are as COVID safe as possible.  



With best wishes,

Sarah Webb.
