Waterside Update

28 April 2022

Waterside Centre continues to be a hive of activity!

We ran a very popular, successful and wide ranging programme of events and activities for local young people over the Easter holidays. Young people enjoyed taking part in a variety of activities, including a reptile workshop, first aid sessions and Code Ninjas coding sessions.

We are also delighted to welcome Jasmine Sewell (pictured) to the Waterside team as our new Community Engagement Assistant. We caught up with Jaz to learn more!

What are you doing in your new role?
My role is to market and sell the space at Waterside Centre to local businesses and community groups. I am also looking to acquire sponsorship and donations from businesses to support our activities for young people.

What attracted to you to work at Waterside / Berkshire Youth?
I have worked for the last five years as a Higher Level Teaching Assistant in schools, and have seen first hand the need for more services to support the wellbeing of young people. When I realised that Waterside Centre had been refurbished and was still run by Berkshire Youth, I got in touch to see what I could offer and luckily there was a role for me!

What do you like about working at Waterside Centre?
Everyone is really friendly and helpful. It’s a fun environment to work in, and we are all committed to making a difference. I also work for Colline’s Kitchen, so I am here every day working with the community and meeting new people.

What do you hope to achieve in your new role?
I would love to see Waterside Centre grow and develop into a busy and fun community space which provides a full range of services to all demographics of our community.

How can we help you?
If anyone has any ideas or contact information for groups and businesses which you think would benefit from working at Waterside Centre and supporting Berkshire Youth, then please let me know and I will follow them up!

Jaz works on Wednesdays, 9am – 5.30pm. Please contact her by email or on 01635 018500.

To keep up to date with everything happening at Waterside Centre, please follow them on social media: Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
