Sowers provides wrap around support for the whole family. This includes youth development groups, mentoring and social work support to parents / caregivers.
We provide prevention and early to mid intervention programmes for young people. This includes youth development programmes and mentoring and support for the whole family.
Outcomes from some of our programmes include young people that have a greater sense of belonging, feel safe, have developed resiliency and are making positive choices.
Sowers was set up as the community services arm of Howick Community Church. Incorporated in 1988, it has been providing mentoring and programmes to young people within the community since that time. In 2007, we developed a complimentary programme/service to sit alongside our youth work and this programme provides wrap around support for the whole family. This was developed to meet a growing need within our community.
