Big impact for young people in Newtown! – 08/03/2019

 

Different, not like a social worker…

Our work in Newtown is making a big difference in some young people’s lives.  3 recent people’s stories show what we can do together with our worker Neil being there for young people:

  • trusting positive relationships developed
  • one person on a College 2-year course
  • linked some people with CAIS or Kaleidoscope (specialist charities) to address cannabis and other drug misuse
  • confidence built up
  • one now has a work qualification
  • one in full-time work
  • another wants to find employment and positive role models.

Our project is funded by Powys Drugs and Alcohol Council.
