Young people from across Wirral enjoyed a day-long ‘Party in the Park’ to mark the launch of the new neighbourhood-based services for young people in the borough.
The celebration in Birkenhead Park featured; live music from local bands, musicians and performers, plus games, exhibitions, crafts, games and workshops.
The day was organised by Wirral Council’s Youth and Play Service and was a chance for young people to find out about the new and improved services for them in their neighbourhood, meet youth workers and other partners who are involved.
‘Party in the Park’ marks the launch of the new Neighbourhood Youth Model for Wirral’s Youth and Play Service which does an amazing job for young people right across Wirral.
The service offers a range of activities for young people aged 11 to 19 years (and 20-25 for young people with disabilities) from all backgrounds, and provides a safe space for young people to be themselves meet and socialise with friends and participate in positive opportunities to learn, develop, grow, have a voice and be inspired while having a good time too.
Around 500 young people and families from across Wirral turned up to enjoy the event. Take a look at the gallery below to see some highlights from the day.
