Broadfield Children's Project began as a series of primary school assemblies, lead by Jeremy Brown.
Jeremy, a former primary school teacher and children's worker in Crawley, had been asked by Christ the Lord Church in Broadfield to look at ways that the church could reach out to children and families in the area; through the school assemblies, Jeremy established that there was a real need for children's work in the area, especially after school.
The Source started in 2000 as the vision of Jo Emmett, who worked with homeless and disaffected young people in Aldershot.
Working with local churches and statutory and voluntary organizations, The Source became established as a youth café, offering a safe space free from drugs and alcohol, for young people to meet and feel part of. The Source moved into its new, fully-equipped, premises in 2007 with support from the local borough council, and worked with more tha 650 young people over the last year.
