Our Impact

In a short space of time The Peel Project has become a trusted grassroots organisation across the city, especially within Central and Avenues Ward.

Through a diverse range of initiatives, including organised sports and educational workshops, The Peel Project has become a beacon of hope for those facing barriers and limitations.

The Peel Project’s impact spans far beyond mere numbers; it’s about changing lives and reshaping communities for the better. This includes fostering mental and physical wellbeing, social support networks, and avenues for personal growth and development.

With service users hailing from 19 different countries and a significant portion speaking English as a second language, we’ve tailored our approach to meet the diverse needs of our community.

Among our 800 registered children, 60% identify as ethnic minorities, with 43% receiving free school meals. We understand the unique challenges faced by these marginalized groups – from social exclusion to increased inequalities.

Since 2021, the organisation has seen a 100% year on year growth in people that access services and events.

Since 2021, through collaborating and the power of volunteering the organisation established our much loved place based programmes and events that includes:

  • Healthy Holidays Activities and Food Programme
  • Year-round youth football and Jiu Jitsuear round BAME womens recreational and physical activity sessions
  • A volunteering and youth hub at Peel Street Park
  • Community Eid Funfair
  • Bi-annual Ladies Bazaar Event
  • Creation of a free to access Cycle Repair Hub in partnership with R-evolution
  • Organised sports and support services for refugees and asylum seekers
  • Clothing bank and Tampon Poverty project
  • Hull’s first BAME Girls Youth Club
  • Community Health Fair Event
  • Weekly adults’ football
  • Cancer Champions Workshops
  • First Aid Awareness Workshops
  • Ladies’ nature trips

 

It's really useful to come together to get information, meet new people, and learn about different cultures."
