Youthact! Project in

Bentham Estate

Bentham Estate

Opening up the community centre to young people.

Project started: Jan 2003
Project ended: Dec 2003

Youth Act! was a laugh, and a chance for us all to change our environment.

It helped us to gain some access to our youth centre, and to learn and experience new things.

During the time of Youth Act! we all had the chance to make new friends and learn new skills along the way.

If I was you I would give it a go, because it is not something in life you will regret.

Kirsty, 2004
