Hendon Young Peoples Project (HYPP) was established in 1979 to provide a programme of Play and Youth activities for young people living in the Hendon and former Thornholme and Central wards of Sunderland. It was successful in gaining a commissioning contract for the East of the City from the City of Sunderland Youth Development Group in 2004. We have gone on to provide quality Youth & Play provision to young people aged 5-19 yrs to the present day. The project was awarded a National Play Award for Education in Play in 1999 and in 2008 was awarded Aiming Higher 4Children Quality Assurance & Sunderland Partnership 14 - 19 Quality Mark We celebrated our 35th anniversary in 2014
HYPP`S building is all on one level with ramps, wheelchair access and toilet facilities for disabled users
A Brief History
Part of our work involves taking childrenand young people on day trips and residentials. These trips are a mix of adventure, education and fun and help the young people increase participation, develop life skills, increase self - esteem and develop social skills,the biggest challenge is proving that outdoor activities are safer than the media sometimes portrays
Through the provision of a locally run and managed Youth and Play facility our aims are:- •To help educate children and young people through their leisure time activities so as to develop their self -confidence, self- esteem and their mental and spiritual capabilities.•To help children and young people to grow to maturity as individuals and members of society.•To help to improve their life chances.•To provide a wide range of information, help and support on issues affecting children and young people as determined by themselves, their families, friends and youth / play workers.
