Just Another Dance Event (JADE)

£8,000 towards running costs for expanding a successful youth project into Dinnington, South Yorkshire.

Just Another Dance Event (JADE) was set up by a group of older teenagers in 1997 as a result of the lack of services and opportunities in their local area. Starting from running raves in the local working men’s club, JADE now offers a wide range of activities for over 200 young people a week in Kiveton Park, about 8 miles outside Rotherham.

Trusthouse Charitable Foundation supported JADE in the expansion of their services to Dinnington, an area of significant multiple deprivation. They now run two weekly training sessions and activities, a service which reached circa 3,000 young people in its first year.
