At Pershore’s Riverside Centre this year we have seen the benefits of our expanded Youth Work remit as, through clubs, counselling, career and life skill sessions, we have helped even more young people to make a positive difference in their lives. Continuing and expanding this work to meet demand requires constant fundraising and promotion, bringing together our Youth Work expertise, the Centre’s amazing facilities and the wider Community.

“I don’t know what I would have done without the youth centre. My youngest goes there now and loves it. Her brother had some real issues, with school and the Police. I’m not joking, it kept him out of getting into some serious trouble. Pershore’s so lucky to have the centre, and the youth workers are fab. It’s such shame they have lost the core funding – crazy government short sighted cost savings. It’s vital for the kids, and the town as a whole.”
