UC Crew participated in “Project Personal Upgrade” along with community organisations from Greece, Romania and the Netherlands.

The theme of the project was to develop yourself by doing something good for someone else . There was several topics: the disabled, minorities and social dialogue. There is a big difference in the care and welfare of older people and the disabled in the various European countries.

The objectives of the project where:
– Young people learn in ten days of each other’s culture through activities and to enter into dialogue with each other .
– Young people learn to know themselves better in ten days , to learn from each other and gain new insights into helping other people.
– Young people learn in ten days to do voluntary work for minorities (how you can help other people) – Young people learn in ten days skills to discover their talents and develop.

The results of the project where:
– Young people know more about each other’s culture , mutual contacts and new friendships are formed.
– Young people have come to know themselves better and have learned to reflect themselves.
– Young people experienced volunteering.
– Young people have discovered some of their talents which they can use in the future .
– Young people have learned to be open to other cultures , visions and possibilities and come out stronger.

The St Helens, UK participants felt they had learnt a lot about how European countries look after their older people and disabled people, they was shocked to see how far behind the UK is at looking after the welfare and health of our communities and feel that there is a lot of work to be done to give older people and disabled people a better quality of life.

The participants delivered presentations about the UK, UC Crew, St Helens and older peoples care.
The participants visited older peoples centres, disability charities, disabilities enterprises (Farms, theatre companies and a bicycle enterprise) and met with community leaders.

UC Crew break dance at St Helens Armed Forces Day

UC Crew break danced at the 2015 St Helens Armed Forces in-front of the large crowds of people supporting our armed forces past and present on the 27th June ‘St Helens Armed Forces Day’.

It was a great experience performing for the supporters and people from the SSAFA, St Helens PALS, Royal Marine Association, Former Forces Support, Royal British Legion, NHS Bridgewater, NHS Pennine Care Military Veteran Service, Health Improvement Team , AIM Amputation, Inspiration and Motivation with Andy Reid and Stephen Cruse, Territorial Army, St Helens Veteran Group (Add Action) and Executive Solutions.

UC Crew have members that are currently serving in the armed forces or have already served. We feel that performing for free at these events and encouraging young people ti attend helps to raise awareness and make the day special in any way we can.
