The Project

Do you have an interest in cooking? Are you a budding chef of the future?
If you have answered yes, we can help!

The Project is a FREE after school programme for young people aged 11+ offering cooking activities, helping you to take the next steps towards your dream.

To join The Project, you must:

  • Be attending a secondary school within the Hastings or St Leonards area

  • Be committed to attending the 10 week course which will help you to build teamwork and cooking skills

 
Sessions will run from the St Nicholas Centre, 66 London Road, St Leonards on Sea, between
4-6pm once a week. The course will include a visit to a professional kitchen and the final session will allow you to show off your cooking skills to your family.
 
The project is funded through the Hastings Opportunity Area, Broadening Horizons fund and courses will run throughout the year. Contact JP, on 01424 423683 ext. 34 or e-mail jpdunin@fsncharity.co.uk for further details and to book a space.

Volunteering at the Health and Wellbeing drop ins I have supported attendees with engaging into activities, not only at FSN but in the local community. It’s great to have access to all the activities and information not only for our service users but also for myself. I really enjoy supporting the community and being part of the hub team!

I am starting to volunteer with FSN in the Health and Wellbeing Hub in July 2018. In September I am starting a level 3 course at FSN through another of their projects and I am also looking into doing a degree in psychology next year. Once I complete the degree I hope to start a new career path and help others and work towards removing the barriers to mental health. The course started me on this new path and changed my life!
