Youth Advisory Panel

“This programme has helped me to grow up. We started in this programme at around 16 and we've been with it since. For me this programme has been something consistent and encouraging through my adolescent life and now into adulthood. This programme is still as important to me because it's giving us the opportunity to do for other young people what was done for us and more. I would be a very different person if I hadn't been involved in this programme. It's provided me with so many opportunities for growth and development”
