Make (Good) Trouble has run Holiday Activities and Food programmes over the summer and Christmas of 2021, commissioned by East Sussex County Council, providing young people in East Sussex with a safe, enriching environment in which to play, learn and unwind. There is a focus on active learning and nutrition with children and young people making food together.
The young people attending the sessions had time to engage in active games each day in order to maintain a healthy balance of exercise and team building.
The young makers who attend our holiday clubs are awarded Digital Badges for their CV on completion of this project. Make (Good) Trouble is a partner of the RSA Cities of Learning programme, designed to provide practical pathways to employment. In 2020 we awarded 54 Cities Of Learning Digital Badges, accredited by City and Guilds, to young people across the South East.

⭐️ “I think the fact that there was a taxi offer was incredible for me, because I’m disabled. So though, I do have a car, driving up and down and up and down, that’d be four trips for me, it would be a lot. So that’s been an incredible bit of funding.” Parent feedback, Summer 2021
⭐️ “She’s got lots of things to tell me at the end of the day – the fact that she’s been trying new things, particularly the photography because she’s been talking about wanting to do GCSE photography forever and I’ve been a bit like, okay, I don’t know where that’s come from. So the fact that she’s had an opportunity to try this out for herself and has just loved it is really, really great, because it could be more than a hobby for her.” Parent feedback, Summer 2021
