We have recently provided a great little 9ft x 24 ft changing room facility to a wonderful project here in Tameside which helps to change negative behaviour and raise aspirations in people who are not in Education, Employment or Training. The new building was tricky to site but in now in pride of place overlooking the lake.

North Outdoor Interventions (NOI) runs an outdoor activity centre at Stamford Park Lake providing local young people with valuable work placement experiences and trainings.

The project offers the following educational progressions for the young people who attend:
• Outdoor Leadership Award (Enrichment sessions)
• Much need local work placements
• Personal Social Development/Information Advice Guidance (SKILLS FOR LIFE)
• Place to come and chill out and be safe

Commenting on the commission NOI’s Shaun McCarthy said: “The new facility will help us to develop the centre further and provide more opportunities for local young people. I was delighted with the service from AV Group as we really do not have the budget to commission something like this and for it not to be right first time. It wasn’t easy getting the unit in as we had to lift it from the roadside down a steep embankment but Andrew Little and his team managed it somehow and I’m looking forward now to our visitors being able to use it this Summer.”

NOI is registered with The Adventure Activities Licensing Authority and provides a wide range of activities across the North West including: windsurfing, Kayaking, open canoeing, improvised rafting, rock climbing, abseiling, gorge scrambling, hill walking and mountaineering, mountain biking, archery, bushcraft, orienteering, camping, navigation, multi-activity and team-building activities.
