Fantastic day spent with Challenge 4 Change

25th June, 2019

On Friday 12th April, four staff members accompanied a group of 11 boys aged between 11-17 to the Challenge 4 Change, a fun day of activities. Staff from Capstone Foster Care identified the boys who would benefit from additional support while in their foster placements. Challenge 4 Change helps individuals by enabling them to overcome barriers to their success. They help people build their confidence, and develop the tools and skills to help them through fun activities and more importantly to help them realise that they hold the key to their success – no one else! Dean from Challenge 4 Change leads the group and within minutes of him introducing himself and chatting to the boys, he had gained their full attention and respect. When the groups were doing the ground-level team building activities Dean gave different boys an opportunity to become the team leader. It was brilliant to watch their confidence suddenly grow, being given this opportunity. The group soon bonded and began to listen to one another and work together as a team to achieve better results. Dean gave an honest account of his past and the journey he had been on. Again, he fully captured the attention of the group and it was inspiring to hear. He most definitely made the impact we wanted and everyone will have taken something away from this. The final part of the day was the high activities and the Leap of Faith! Wow... Even those who were petrified of heights overcame their fears through the encouragement they were given. Overall, it was a fantastic day to remember and had a massive impact. It was an excellent way to raise the confidence of our young people in care and every single person achieved something. We were looked after from beginning to end by the Challenge 4 Change team who were brilliant and quickly had the trust and respect from all. Thank you to Challenge 4 Change, you were amazing!
