Message from SYFC Patron One of my key priorities is seeing young people develop their full potential and give rise to a fresh generation of leaders in our churches. That is one of the reasons I am honoured to be a Patron of Swindon Youth for Christ. Over the years SYFC has established a reputation locally and nationally for its creative and effective engagement with young people in the town. This Annual Report reveals how Chris Priddy and the team have continued to build on the excellent foundation established through Simon Halls’ leadership. There have been a number of fresh initiatives, notably the ‘Youth Charter’ with its aim of raising awareness of young people in our churches and increasing commitment to them as members of the body of Christ. Older Christians generally have little idea of the challenges and pressures facing young people - and especially believers - in our rapidly changing world. In the face of these God has placed SYFC at the heart of Swindon to be like a polished arrow for His purposes. I commend all involved with their ministry and service for your prayers and support. Rt Revd Dr Lee Rayfield - Bishop of Swindon and Chair of Swindon Churches Together Report from the Chair The Trustee Committee of Swindon YFC is responsible for the direction, vision and mission of the organisation and its implementation. We meet regularly for this purpose. This past year (April 2011 to March 2012) has been one of change and of God's provision: Rev. Nick Lines stepped down as the Chair of the Executive Committee and I stepped up to the role in a temporary capacity, Laura Rawson joined the team to work on the Pinehurst Chaplaincy project, Rob Burns joined us as a CYM student working with BIOS and from September we had no volunteers come to us through the National YFCone scheme, the first time in many years. We also had 3 new Council of Reference members join us which has been great. At the start of the last financial year, we needed to significantly raise our month on month income in order to keep our finances in the black beyond December. Despite the financial difficulties that all organisations have been facing, God has blessed us each month, so that we ended the financial year with more money that we started with. Despite the challenges and difficulties faced, it's been an fantastic year with highlights such as In:School joining us as a partner organisation in a similar vein to our existing relationship with BIOS and the launch of the Youth Work Charter, which has had great interest from churches and has even featured in Youthwork Magazine and The Baptist Times! Richard Pope - Acting Chair of Trustees

Directors Report In many ways this report is very boring! It’s full of numbers, statistics and facts about what Swindon Youth for Christ have been up to over the past 12 months. Inside you will read about how incredibly sacrificially generous our supporters and partner churches have been this past year, you will discover that in this year we managed to increase the opportunities we have to share Good News with young people by 50% on the previous year to over 13,000 and you can find out how many assemblies, school lessons and lunchtime clubs we ran. You can even find out how many hours SYFC team members spent in local parks and school playgrounds doing detached youth work – meeting young people where they are. These are all really exciting things to read about and it is a great record of the work of the organisation over the past year, but it doesn't tell the stories of the individual young lives that have transformed, impacted and changed because of the message of hope, life and love that we shared with them this year. To read those stories you will need to dig out your copies of last year’s newsletters, make yourself a nice cup of tea and sit down prepared to be astounded at the goodness of our God. 2011/12 has been an incredible year for SYFC where God opened many doors and many hearts. New groups have started, old groups have grown and schools continue to invite us to come and share with their students in a wide variety of ways. I have the incredible privilege of working with such a passionate, creative and loving team whose heart for the gospel and the young people of our town never ceases to amaze me. Please do continue to pray for us and all the work that we do, that God would continue to use the little that we have to offer, to bring transformation and Good News in to the lives of young people in Swindon. Finally I want to say a huge “Thank you” to you, for all of your on-going support, love, prayers, encouragements and partnership. May God bless you abundantly. Amen. Rev. Chris Priddy - SYFC Centre Director 2. ACHIEVEMENTS AND PERFORMANCE 2.1 Schools Work Highlights Lunch Clubs - We have continued running weekly lunch time clubs in Churchfields, Commonweal, Nova Hreod, Kingsdown, Swindon Academy Faith Room, and supporting in Greendown from Apr-Jul 11. We have been reaching around 60-70 young people each week through lunch clubs alone. Assemblies - We have delivered over 36 assemblies in Crowdy’s, Commonweal, Nova Hreod, Kingsdown, Churchfields, Dorcan and Swindon Academy on a variety of topics.

Swindon Youth for Christ ANNUAL REPORT 2011/12 Registered charity number 274402


Respect Lessons - We have delivered 10 Year 7 pupils Respect lessons in Greendown and Dorcan schools. Lush Lessons - We delivered the LUSH programme to Year 9 and 10 pupils in Dorcan Academy and with Year 9 in Greendown exploring issues of relationships, friendships, sex and answering many questions posed by the young people. Pre-Exclusion Work - Over the past year we have been facilitating a year 9 boys ASDAN lesson and have continued to support the Year 10/11 XL programme in Swindon Academy, working with those young people who are ‘at risk’. We also accompanied the Year 11 group on a residential to an outdoor education centre where young people developed new skills and gained confidence. It has been a privilege to work with these young people and watch them grow. Detached Work - We have continued to deliver detached work in Swindon Academy, Kingsdown and Nova Hreod. We have also started detached work in Dorcan Academy following on from some transition work we undertook with year 7’s. NOMAD mission week - We had the YFC national sports team- NOMAD with us for another mission week in October. NOMAD travel around the UK with a 3m high and 9m diameter cage where they deliver Panna-football (a dutch style of football) lessons and skills. The team worked in Swindon Academy, Nova Hreod and Greendown delivering lessons on self belief, team work and football coaching. The team were also available at break and lunch times where they chatted with young people about what they do and why they do it. The cage was also used during the evenings in Pinehurst and Stratton where together with the SYFC and BIOS staff they got alongside young people. 2.2 Other Highlights Other Highlights Swindon Churches Youth Work Charter In October we launched this exciting new initiative with a Church Leaders Lunch. The charter invites all churches to make 7 commitments to reaching out to and caring for young people. So far 9 churches have signed up and this is growing rapidly. Full information can be found at www.swindonchurchesyouthworkcharter.info in:School Over the course of the year we began a conversation with the East Swindon in:School Primary Schools project about how we might be able to support their vision to grow and support primary schools work right across the town. In October the project became a partnership project of both SYFC and Scripture Union and we are excited about seeing the impact of the project over the coming years. The in:School website launched at www.in-school.co.uk. Abi Corry, the projects lead worker went on maternity leave and baby Noah was born in March, we send our full congratulations to her and Matt.

IMPACT 5 IMPACT Youth Worship Events were run during the year with a good number of young people attending from Churches right around the town and beyond. We had visiting speakers from Christian Aid and the Bible Society and the event continues to be supported by and organised by youth leaders around Swindon. BIOS The BIOS project continued to develop throughout the year delivering pastoral care work to young people in schools and their local communities. In September 2011 Rob Burns joined the team as a Centre for Youth Ministry placement student. Rob shares his highlights: Since joining BIOS in September I have really enjoyed seeing how God can work through journeying with young people in Swindon. In December 2011 I was in a mentoring session at Swindon Academy and we got onto the subject of Christmas presents. One young person said "all I really want is love!" After this session I prayed that she would indeed have that love of her family and also that she would be aware of God's amazing love. When I went back into school after the holidays, I met up with her again and asked how Christmas had been, to which she replied "It was so amazing, I didn't care about the gifts, because I got the love that I had asked for before!" This is an amazing testimony of how God touches the lives of those that we work with. Another highlight of mine was doing the emotional literacy days at Kingsdown School. Through a series of short stories we explored emotions such as anger, love, rejection, trust and self belief. At the end of the sessions one of the young people said "thanks for doing this, I've learnt to deal with my emotions in positive ways!" As well as the stories we also used art work to express our emotions and one of the young people who had been struggling with self esteem issues wrote on a mirror "It's good to be me" New Pinehurst Youth Chaplain Appointed Laura Rawson was appointed as the Assistant Youth Chaplain to the Pinehurst Estate in June 2011 and took up her post on the 1st September. She shares her highlights: I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working here at SYFC; it has been a great first year. Although moving to a new town where I knew no one was quite daunting, Swindon really does now feel like home. The aspect of my job that I enjoy the most is working with the young people in the Academy, spending lunch times with them, chatting about life and faith. It has been really encouraging seeing them engage with the installations in the faith room, the one with the greatest response was about dreams with over 50 young people filling in clouds which dangled from the ceiling. Another highlight has been taking a group of young people to Bristol on the train to visit an indoor skate park. From this we have launched a skate park project and have been looking at the possibility of getting a portable skate park within the community. Relationships between the Chaplaincy and Swindon Academy have continued to grow, with me helping weekly in GCSE RE lessons. We are also planning a mission week for the new academic year, so prayers for this to keep rolling and all fitting together would be most welcome! Thank you for your continued support for our work, we would not be able to do half of what we do without your support, so thank you!

Swindon Youth for Christ ANNUAL REPORT 2011/12 Registered charity number 274402


All together, in 2011/12 we had 13,224 individual contacts with young people including 162 Lunch clubs, 68 Lessons, 36 Assemblies, and 59 hours spent on detached work. This compares to last year’s figures of 8564 individual contacts, 143 Lunch clubs, 43 Lessons, 26 Assemblies, and 67 hours spent on detached work. BIOS have been involved in 51 detached sessions, 68 centre based youth sessions, 47 small group sessions and had 314 1-1 sessions. 3. STRUCTURE, GOVERNANCE AND MANAGEMENT Swindon Youth for Christ is a charitable organisation established in 1950. The charity is organised and governed under its constitution dated 15th October 2007 which sets out the objects and powers of the charity. Members (partners) support the aims of the organisation and are invited to the Annual General Meeting. Members elect the trustees these individuals make up the Executive Committee. 4. RECRUITMENT AND APPOINTMENT OF TRUSTEES The charity trustees are responsible for the strategic direction and policy of the charity. The trustees give their time freely and receive no remuneration or other financial benefits. The trustees seek to ensure that the needs of work are appropriately reflected through the diversity of the trustee body and seek to identify potential new trustees through the work they are doing. 5. INDUCTION AND TRAINING OF TRUSTEES Potential new trustees meet with the SYFC Director and/or Chair of Trustees. An overview of the charities work and the rights and responsibilities of being a trustee are provided at this meeting. The potential trustee is then invited to attend a number of Trustees meetings as an observer. After this the existing trustees formally vote on the suitability of each candidate as a trustees and once accepted can thereafter function on the committee as co-optees. At the first Annual General Meeting following this, the members of the charity vote on whether to accept the co-optees as full trustees. 6. RISK MANAGEMENT The trustees have overseen a review of the major risks to which the charity is exposed. The trustees have assessed the charity’s main risk as a reduction in funding from all sources and a strategic plan has been put into place to deal with this issue. All other risks are reviewed regularly and procedures put in place to mitigate the risk to the charity. In addition to the above all prospective employees and volunteers undertake a Criminal Records Bureau

Swindon Youth for Christ ANNUAL REPORT 2011/12 Registered charity number 274402


7. ORGANISATIONAL STRUCTURE The trustees meet together monthly and are responsible for all the strategic direction of SYFC and the activities undertaken by the charity. The day-to-day management of SYFC is delegated to the Director who is also responsible for ensuring that the team continues to develop skills and working practices in line with best practice. This is monitored through regular supervision meetings and annual appraisals which are carried out for staff at every level in the organisation. The organisation also has a Council of Reference from whom the Director and Trustees seek advice on vision and strategy and day to day matters. Swindon Youth for Christ consists of a vast base of people who are involved in many contrasting ways. We are almost completely dependent on our many partners and partner churches for funding and prayer support. Many volunteers and associates work with our dedicated staff to organise some fantastic youth events, lead Rock Solid Clubs, and to maintain a high level of high quality input into many of the local secondary schools. Others work tirelessly in administration and resourcing the team. We are very thankful to everyone who has contributed time, prayers and money to the work of SYFC over the past year; in doing so you have enabled many thousands of young people to become more aware of the Good News of Jesus Christ and the power it can have in their lives. 8. STATEMENT OF BENEFIT TO THE COMMUNITY As a registered charity, and in line with the requirements of Section 4 of the Charities Act 2006, the staff and trustees of Swindon Youth for Christ acknowledge that: • Our work does have an identifiable benefit to those we work with. • These benefits are related to our aims. • These benefits are clear. • These benefits are not the cause of any detriment or harm. • The aims are appropriate to the beneficiaries and vice-versa. • The opportunity to benefit from our work is not unreasonably restricted to geographical restrictions, or by the ability to pay any fees charged. • People in poverty are not excluded from benefiting from our work. 9. FINANCIAL REVIEW Against the backdrop of limited resources and insecurities over funding, it has continued to be difficult to plan or develop services. Nevertheless the charity, with the support of staff, volunteers and financial partners have generated a positive financial outcome for the period, with regular giving gradually rising.

Swindon Youth for Christ ANNUAL REPORT 2011/12 Registered charity number 274402


10. PRINCIPAL FUNDING SOURCES Our main source of giving for general charitable purposes is from individuals and churches. Our giving both regular and occasional has increased over the year and overall the general income has increased by approx £21000 on the previous year. Our restricted giving from grants for specific projects has increased slightly over the year. Our thanks go to Bristol Diocese Growth fund for funding a chaplaincy worker for Pinehurst, and Peanuts Trust for a grant towards the salary of our BIOS worker. 11. INVESTMENT POLICY The charity has no long term investments. All our money including any reserves is kept in the banking system, which includes a higher interest charity deposit account. 12. RESERVES POLICY The Trustees have examined the charity’s requirements for reserves in the light of the main risks to the organisation. It has established a policy whereby the unrestricted funds not committed or invested in tangible fixed assets held by the charity should be if possible between 3 and 6 months of the core cost expenditure ie Salaries and redundancy payments which is equivalent to £6672 per month plus a lump sum of £4348. The present level of unrestricted funds available to the charity of £25383 therefore reaches our minimum target but falls significantly short of the higher target level. Although the strategy is to continue to build reserves the Trustees are well aware that it is unlikely that the target range can be reached for at least five years. In the short term the Trustees have also considered the extent to which existing activities and expenditure could be curtailed should such circumstances arise. 13.

PLANS FOR FUTURE PERIODS

The charity plans to continue the activities outlined in this document in the forthcoming years subject to satisfactory funding arrangements. The Trustees intend to continue focussing on developing additional sources of funding and maintaining the charity’s links with its partners and major grant donors, ensuring that the charity’s standard of service is maintained and improved to meet its beneficiaries and its donor’s requirements. 14.

INDEPENDENT EXAMINER’S REPORT To the trustees of Swindon Youth for Christ. Respective Responsibilities of Trustees and Examiner The charity’s trustees are responsible for the preparation of financial statements. You consider that the audit requirement of Section 43(2) Charities Act 1993 (the Act) does not apply. It is my responsibility to state, on the basis of procedures specified in the general Directions given by the Charity Commissioners under Section 43(7)(b) of the Act, whether particular matters have come to my attention. Basis of Independent Examiner’s Report My examination was carried out in accordance with the General Directions given by the Charity Commissioners. An examination includes a review of the accounting records kept by the charity and a comparison of the financial statements presented with those records. It also includes consideration of any unusual items or disclosures in the financial statements, and the seeking of explanations from you as trustees concerning any such matters. The procedures undertaken do not provide all the evidence that would be required in an audit and, consequently, I do not express an audit opinion on the view given by the financial statements. Independent Examiner’s Statement In connection with my examination, no matter has come to my attention: (1) which gives me reasonable cause to believe that, in any material respect, the requirements: - to keep accounting records in accordance with Section 41 of the Act; and - to prepare financial statements which accord with the accounting records and to comply with the accounting requirements of the Act have not been met; or (2) to which, in my opinion, attention should be drawn in order to enable a proper understanding of the financial statements to be reached.

SWINDON YOUTH FOR CHRIST NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 1. ACCOUNTING POLICIES a) Basis of Accounting The financial statements have been prepared under the Historical Cost Convention and in accordance with the Standard of Recommended Practice, Accounting and Reporting by Charities (Revised 2005) and with the Financial Reporting Standard for Smaller Entities (effective April 2008) b) Voluntary Income Voluntary income is received by way of donations and grants and is included in full in the income and expenditure account when received. c) Donations in Kind The charity is fortunate in the level of support it receives from its volunteers. Without this voluntary support, considerable expense would be incurred. It is not thought meaningful or practicable to put a monetary value on the support but the committee is grateful to those who provide it. d) Grants Grants receivable and payable are included in the financial statements when received or paid. Where grants are received or made for a defined period any amounts relating to a period extending beyond the charity’s accounting date are deferred. e) Restricted and Unrestricted Funds The financial statements distinguish between restricted and unrestricted funds. The former are received from donors and are subject to restrictions on the purposes for which they may be used. Unrestricted funds are those where there are no externally imposed restrictions. They include those freely available to the charity for expenditure or appropriation to reserves for internally designated purposes. g) Resources Expended Expenditure is recognised on an accrual basis as a liability is incurred. Expenditure includes any VAT which cannot be fully recovered, and is reported as part of the expenditure to which it relates: - Costs of generating funds comprise the costs associated with attracting voluntary income. - Charitable expenditure comprises those costs incurred by the charity in the delivery of its activities and services for its beneficiaries. It includes both costs that can be allocated directly to such activities and those costs of an indirect nature necessary to support them. - Governance costs include those costs associated with meeting the constitutional and statutory requirements of the charity and include the audit fees and costs linked to the strategic management of the charity. - All costs are allocated between the expenditure categories of the SoFA on a basis designed to reflect the use of the resource. Costs relating to a particular activity are allocated directly, others are apportioned on an appropriate basis e.g. floor areas, per capita or estimated usage as set out in Note 3.
