Kidcare4u is a registered charity which aims to support families to acquire the skills and confidence they need to turn their potential into success at school, the workplace and beyond. Our organisation believes it has potential to help ethnic minority communities in deprived areas to further develop themselves in education, health and integration.
Kidcare4U was originally set up as an Out Of School Club in April 2017 with the purpose to provide weekend childcare to families in Pillgwenlly of Newport. Around 90% of children attending Kidcare4U are from families on low income, however these children were very charismatic and full of potential. This is when we realised that a lot more can be done for these children and families to encourage and help them reach their full potential in life. Kidcare4u became a registered charity in September 2019.
Firstly we provide educational support to adults and children so that they get that vital support which will aid them further in life to progress towards higher education and employment.
We also aim to encourage and promote health and well being so that parents understand the consequences of bad health choices and how that would affect their children in the long term. The organisation would like to promote a healthy lifestyle and provide services to encourage physical activities and healthy eating for families.
Another important venture that Kidcare feels would benefit the wider society is to promote integration and try reduce barriers between disadvantaged ethnic groups and other communities.
