Don’t let an important local
resource shut down!
The Whitehawk After School Project (WASP) gives some of the county’s most vulnerable children a place to play, learn, and socialise in an environment of warmth and safety. It offers a haven of encouragement and understanding for many children suffering difficult circumstances at school, at home, and in other aspects of their lives.
WASP also gives parents the chance to take up full-time employment and education through providing subsidised childcare over those crucial few hours between the end of the school day and the end of the work day, and over the longer school holidays.
Despite being a simple, cost-effective solution to a range of issues in a deprived community, WASP is under threat and needs your help to continue.
WASP, part of Sussex charity Impact Initiatives, has positively influenced a great number of children and parents in Whitehawk but, like so many such schemes around the country, it’s no longer being funded by local authorities. Knowing how much it enriches so many lives, and how devastating it would be to lose it, we can’t let WASP shut down!
