CATSS Primary

Children Achieving Through Student Support is an extremely worthwhile, challenging, yet rewarding, flagship project. CATSS provides a time of respite for 23 local children, aged 7-11, from hard to reach backgrounds. Through fortnightly training, you’ll provide the awesome experiences these children deserve, helping them to develop social skills and give them the time, space and fun every child needs! As well as gaining a range of certified training, as a volunteer, you’ll get the chance to lead a range of exciting activities. On our action packed three daytrips and weeklong residential, there will be activities such as wheelchair basketball, crafts, swimming, a trip to the farm and a day at the beach just to name a few!


You will be part of one great team of dedicated students, who become great friends, aiming to give these children an amazing week!

CATSS is a life-changing project for all involved, children and volunteers alike!

In 2014-15, the project received £4,460 in funding from BBC Children in Need in order for the project to run.
