What are we developing? What do we do?

About us

We have developed an inclusive volunteering work experience programme called WEXi that will provide a unique forum for socialisation, training and employment skills for the young adult people it will support, who are struggling to secure “meaningful” or sustained employment.

…Please keep a watch on our website for updates…

Our members are continuing to support local Gosport charities, organisations and businesses with their events and carrying on the work in our allotment space.

In 2019, our members became involved in UK Youth Voice and became a UK Youth Voice representatives at the Royal Garden Party, Buckingham Palace, where they met HRH: Princess Anne and the famous Formula 1 racing driver: Nigel Mansell.

Level Up Gosport

Recently, our members have volunteered their help at or have been involved in the following projects:

– Gardening at Thorngate Halls: where they completely renovated the overgrown gardens and made them neat and tidy for visitors to enjoy.

– Stokes Bay Healthy Eating Project BBQ: the members were encouraged to choose healthy BBQ eating options and enjoyed a game or 2 of rounders in the sunshine.

– My Favourite Place: Photography Project: our members worked alongside Gosport Cultural Consortium, interviewing and photographing local Gosport residents to find out where their favourite places were in the locality.  The photographs were put on display at The Discovery Centre in Gosport.

– Gosport Waterfront Festival – where our members met the stars of East 17! – and is a music festival highlighting local and national talent.  The members got the chance to become stewards for the day – learning valuable employability skills.  The organisers were very grateful for our members’ support, as they had been let down on the day by some volunteers and would have struggled without our help.

– Gosport Rotary Club: Annual Car Rally at Stokes Bay – the members were involved in stewarding, ticket checking, keeping the venue clean and tidy, plus helped with general inquiries from the public.  We received the following feedback afterwards: 

“Please pass on the thanks of Gosport Rotary Club…the young people's assistance on the gates was super and the littler pickers did an excellent job; so much so that when we cleared the field at about 6pm there was virtually no litter for us to pick-up."

Our allotment

Level Up Gosport cultivate their own allotment, a venture which regularly attracts up to eight members a week, where they learn horticultural skills with the aim of becoming 100% organic and sustainable.  The older allotment holders enjoy engaging with, giving advice and exchanging produce with the young people.

…In 2021 our members came 2nd Place in a competition for the best allotment…
