Child Dynamix works with Children and Young people growing up in challenging and difficult circumstances; they might be living in families with issues like addiction to alcohol and/or drugs, domestic and other forms of abuse, a parent or sibling in prison. These children and young people often don’t have an adult they can rely on in their lives or a secure place to call home, they don’t have routine or support as they try and find their way in life.
Our services and activities are developed and delivered with these children and young people in mind. We work in Hull and Humber with 6,000 individuals every year.
Child Dynamix is a Social Enterprise and Charity founded in 2005. The main focus from the outset has been on social regeneration in areas of deprivation in East Hull, since this time the Charity has expanded to work across the City of Hull, East Riding and is currently working across the Humber Sub-region.
Child Dynamix first piece of work in 2001 prior to becoming a registered Charity was to develop a Children’s Day Nursery at the heart of the Preston Road estate. The aim was to support parents to gain training and work opportunities whilst their children accessed quality childcare helping them to be better prepared for Primary School. Further projects focusing on improving the lives of Children and their families were developed from 2001 to 2005.
In 2008 the Charity was approached by a New Deal for Communities organisation and asked to acquire their Youth projects. In September 2009, members of staff from the New Deal for Communities were transferred to Child Dynamix. This additional service helped to strengthen the offer of the charity over time with the continued theme being social regeneration for Children, Young People and their families.
