The Junior Wardens Scheme is run by Wythenshawe Community Housing Group’s Neighbourhood Wardens Team. The group consists of around 60 young people aged between 8 and 14 who like to get involved in local community projects to improve the neighbourhoods which we live in. We are looking for exciting projects to get involved and are always welcome to ideas especially to support local community groups and tenants and residents association who wish to embark on small projects. Please keep visiting this site for up-to-date information and forthcoming projects.
These are the typical types of projects the junior wardens get involved with:
- Helping Manchester’s Dog Warden Rachel to give Free Micro Chipping & Advice to local residents about looking after their dog.
- Visiting the Manchester’s Waste Experience to learn about waste and recycling
- A trip to Kingswood Education Centre in Wales
We are currently looking for new recruits for the Junior Wardens Scheme, if you would like to find our more please do not hesitate to ring the Trust on 0161 946 9513 and ask for Lee Isherwood.
School Partnership Work
Neighbour Wardens have always had close links with local schools both primary and secondary, having a familiarisation with young people, allows them the opportunity to understand the role and what our key objectives are.
Neighbourhood Wardens will deliver presentations on various subject areas such:
- Introduction to Wardens
- Environmental issues
- Stranger Danger
- Anti-social Behaviour
We also link this in with Junior Wardens and try to promote this activity and have a steady flow of new recruits, we work closely with local schools to invite classes of children to Wythenshawe House to look at the Control Room, Warden vehicles and have a chance to use the equipment that is used by the service and have a first-hand insight into front-line services for the community and the positive contribution they have in providing a safe community to live.
