CHYPPS NEWS LETTER
Welcome to our CHYPPS fortnightly e-Newsletter
Unfortunately, CHYPPS has been struggling for some time to access funding to continue its support of members and young people in Somerset.
With this in mind, the trustees are proposing a legal change that with secure CHYPPS for the foreseeable future.
Specifically, we are proposing to change CHYPPS legal status from an independent charity to a project run under the umbrella of the Volunteer Network.
This will mean closing CHYPPS as a charity and registered company and working with the Volunteer Network to continue the work of CHYPPS as a project under their legal umbrella.
There will be no change in the services offered by CHYPPS to its members, but it will remove the legal costs each year that without the change or securing of additional funding will force CHYPPS to close in March.
If you haven't already voted as a member of CHYPPS we need you to a vote on this link below.
Eileen Tipper one our trustees has asked for the following to be circulated as part of the discussion about the future of CHYPPS.
Given that the membership of CHYPPS is both extensive and diverse it is unlikely that a single charity will be able to support all members equally effectively. I hope that members have access to a choice of charities with whom they can be associated. I am therefore exploring with Somerset charities whether any of them feel able or are willing to host groups of members or individual organisations.If they are I suggest that members register their option before March 31st. Choices include accepting support from an alternative charity, accepting the offer from the Volunteer Network or closing CHYPPS.
I will report my findings at the Open Meeting on 1st March and answer any questions I can about the future.”
Eilleen Tipper, Independent Trustee CHYPPS.
There will also be two optional meeting for CHYPPS members to talk about this if people would prefer.
1st March at 9.30 to 10.30am
12th March at 9.30 to 10.30am
This will also be the Emergency General Meeting and final option for members to vote on the future of CHYPPS.
If you wish to attend either of the meetings just book a place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org (mailto:email@example.com)

We are promoting the importance of physical activity for mental health and well-being within 11-18 year olds and would like to work with groups who could incorporate some activity into their weekly sessions which bring together young people of between these ages. Equipment and training will be provided for each group to use in their weekly setting. SASP are looking for 5-6 groups who would be willing to take part in the pilot.
