Positive Futures works with young people to help them with personal development, gain education, access training, receive mentoring and take part in both one to one and group activities. The hope is that it will then enable young people to aim high and facilitate their own great futures.
A group of 32 young people came over two days on work placements to help The Whitechapel Centre to maintain, develop and deliver gardening sessions along side our clients at a local community gardening project.
The group taking a break from work The young people where not shy about getting their hands dirty and they made a tremendous effort in helping to improve the local landscape. With the help of Dennis Joynson, our resident horticultural teacher, the young people where able to learn and gain some knowledge about gardening.
Working hard in the Kensington Community It was a great couple of days with the young people, they were shown around the Enablement Centre and met with clients. They were also given information on all the different projects that The Whitechapel delivers.
It was a privilege to attend and see all the young ladies beautifully dressed, and the young men 'suited and booted'. On the night team leader, Alan Walsh praised them all for all their efforts in the various projects they had contributed to and rightly declared them fine young adults.

From The Whitechapel gardening group a big thank you to all at Positive Futures and good luck for the future.
