Inspiring Barrow Kickstart Programme

Inspiring Barrow Kickstart Programme got underway in September, promoting communication, teamwork, emotional resilience, self-efficacy and leadership.

Working with 16 primary schools, with Year 6 children, across Barrow and Dalton this term, Kickstart has been welcomed by the schools after the disruption of the past year. The programme, which is delivered in after schools, runs for 10 weeks including half term activities for the children.

The programme culminates with a family celebration evening at The Forum on December 3rd when the children receive accolades for their efforts. The event will be attended by HM Lord Lieutenant Mrs Hensman who will present special awards, MP for Barrow and Furness, Mr Simon Fell, as guest speaker and Mayor of Barrow, Helen Wall, who will present certificates.
