Who Are We?
EXODUS is a children’s charity, with a Christian ethos, based in Barnsley – South Yorkshire. We were registered with the Charity Commission in June 2002. Registration number: 1118191.
We currently run clubs for children aged 8-11 and separate clubs for older young people aged 11-15. All those attending, as well as having fun, learn the importance of respecting themselves, others and their communities.
We have visiting teams who see the children weekly at their homes. This gives an opportunity to promote the clubs and build relationships with parents in order that we are known by them and accountable.
In addition to our mid-week clubs, we take groups of children on day trips and activity weekends free of charge. This enables us to build on relationships and gives the children a chance to get to know and trust us away from the pressures of home and school. Activity weekends can now take place much more frequently, now we have our own centre for these events at Jenny’s Field.
We work in partnership with various organisations in the delivery of our services. We are represented on community groups in the areas where we operate and seek partnerships with schools, local authorities, churches, parish councils and other community interest organisations. We are known in both the voluntary and statutory sector and contribute our experiences in the various consultation events which focus on work with children and young people.
The charity has eleven employees and a team of about 70 volunteers. The charity is overseen by a group of seven trustees who have a range of personal and professional experiences and qualifications relevant to our work.
