Comments from young people who have benefited from this work include:

“Sunday is a very good day for my family now, we all come at Mayfield school and do different things, and have so much to talk about and when we go home. Always there is a project and things to do.
I am involved in mentoring and has been great fun and learning in the same time.
I was awarded the Jack Petchey Award and with the money we organized the “Too buy to get into trouble “ show which was a great success. I felt so proud there
There are so many young  people that  find this service useful and enjoyable
