Hot Chocolate Trust

Charity description

Hot Chocolate Trust logo
Hot Chocolate Trust is a Youth Work organisation, based in the city centre of Dundee, operating from The Steeple Church.

We work with young people aged 12-21 who hang out in the city centre (around 150 different young people over the course of a fortnight). We don’t ‘put stuff on’ for the young people, instead we support them to develop their own opportunities – that way there’s a shed load more skills and confidence developed.

Most importantly, Hot Chocolate is a place where the young people feel 'at home' and feel surrounded by ‘family’.

Our vision is to see young people on their journey…

choosing… engagement, future, potential

developing… resilience, confidence, self-knowledge, purpose, broad worldview

becoming… positive change-makers, community builders, mature citizens

based on the following values:

*Holistic development which realises physical, mental, emotional and spiritual

* Place which is open, responsive, safe, accepting and grows community

* Relationships, based on respect and trust, which are organic and reciprocal

* Plans and activities owned by young people, that adapt with culture and realise change for all involved

* An organisation which embodies a culture of reflective learning

Hot Chocolate is open to all young people without prejudice or distinction of religion, race, culture, health, disability, gender, sexuality or politics. The only restrictions are of age: secondary school age up to 21 years old.

Charity No: SC 035714
