Streetz

Streetz’ is a brand, created by a partnership of agencies, started by Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council. Its purpose is to run a holiday activity programme aimed at 10 to 17 year olds in the borough.

The success of the scheme would not be possible without a whole host of community organisations. These organisations put together the individual programmes within their area, adding contributions to ensure the programmes continue. Furthermore, partnership support is received from Anvil Arts and Safer North Hampshire.

Streetz has finished for this year. A new programme will be launched in 2019. To keep up to date please follow The Children, Young People and Families Team Facebook page: www.facebook.com/cypfteam
