Disrespect NoBody Campaign



The third phase of the Home Office Disrespect Nobody campaign will run from today, 29 March, to the beginning of May 2018.

The aim of the campaign is to prevent young people, both boys and girls aged 12 to 18 years old, from becoming perpetrators and victims of abusive relationships.

For 2018, the focus of the campaign will be consent, sexting and personal boundaries, which are the issues many young people need more education and information on. All campaign advertising including radio, video-on-demand and social media, directs young people to the website http://www.disrespectnobody.co.uk where they can find further information and the details of organisations which can provide help and support.

We have produced a range of partner support materials to help you use the resources with the young people that you work with and promote it within your local area. These include posters, social media assets and materials developed specifically for LGBT young people.

Campaign assets are available to download here on gov.uk and the Home Office has tweeted about the campaign. Please help support the campaign on social media by retweeting our post.

We have also produced a DVD containing the campaign adverts, you can order up to 10 copies of the DVD by emailing VAWGCampaigns@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk

Thank you for your support.   PLEASE VISIT BELOW FOR MORE INFO







Young Carers – Cinderella trip !

Burgess Hill Youth took 20 young carers to see Cinderella on Sunday 21 January performed at Martlets Hall by Burgess Hill Theatre Club.

The tickets were kindly purchased by Burgess Hill District Lions and Burgess Hill Rotary Club. 

It was a very entertaining afternoon topped off by a picture with the main characters. Zoe Ball was also there watching the event and was happy to be in the team photo. Burgess Hill Youth would like to thank all those involved in making this a magical afternoon.

BURGESS HILL YOUTH will hold their next Young Carers event at Fairfield Community Centre from 12.30-4.30pm.  A range of activities are planned for this afternoon to include arts, crafts, sports, plus cake decorating.  Lunch will be generously provided by the Mustard Seed café. Transport is also available if needed.  To book your place please pop into the Help Point and complete a registration form.  If you have any questions please contact Jennifer on 01444 238207 (9am-3pm daily). 

Young carers are children and young people who help look after a member of the family who is sick, disabled or has mental health problems, or is misusing drugs or alcohol. They may be someone who has direct caring responsibilities or they may be someone whose life is affected as a result of living with someone who has these conditions.

Young Carers Christmas 2017 Tea Party

Burgess Hill Youth Young Carers enjoyed a lovely Christmas themed tea party at Abbeyfield Nursing Home on Friday 22 December.  The event was an enjoyable experience for all involved and follows recent television themed programmes promoting intergenerational activities.  The Young Carers were greeted at the home and enjoyed Frozen themed craft activities with the residents popping in. Then they were welcomed into the large dining area where they were introduced to Frozen characters, who were staff dressed up for the occasion.  A trip out to Santa’s Grotto in the beautiful snow filled garden (courtesy of the homes premises team!) to visit the Elves to receive beautiful homemade gifts for each child was a pure pleasure to see.  They all came back in for a homemade tea party with the residents of the home present. The afternoon was completed with some Christmas themed reading including “Twas the Night Before Christmas”.  This was a magical afternoon for the Young Carers of Burgess Hill and big thanks to Abbeyfield Residential Home, particularly Heather Rogers, for the hard work gone into making this a most memorable experience for us all.  Burgess Hill Youth holds a programme of activities supported by Burgess Hill Town Council. 

To find out more about the programme please contact Jennifer by email to jennifer@burgesshill.gov.uk

Multi Use Games Area- CLOSED due to rubbish & damage

It is with regret that Burgess Hill Youth have taken the decision to lock their Multi Use Games Area ( The Cage) and stopped use for the foreseeable future by the local community.

This action has been taken as a small minority of users, continually leave rubbish, drugs paraphernalia, smashed glass bottles and this weekend set fire to plastic bottles that have damaged the surface.

The area was completely cleaned up on Saturday and the pictures below depict what was found on Sunday.

The Club is run by a team of volunteers that worked hard to raised the funds to the refurbish The Cage last summer. It is disappointing to have to continually clear up others mess as they have no respect for the facility provided freely to the Community.
