I have met loads of new friends and done stuff I would never imagined I would. Having a chronic condition does not have to hold you back!

The Youth Work course has been fantastic! I have learnt about new theories and skills to give me more confidence when working with young people.

Thank you for inviting me on the residential. It was the best trip that I have been on! I met lots of new friends and it helped my confidence.

I have nothing but positive praise for the Youth Service. The staff are fantastic, motivated and supportive to both young people and parents.

Youth Club helps me to get away from everything and talk to people about any problems I am having. It’s great having my own space and time when I need it.
