Last week make:good visited the Fresh Youth Academy where the team spoke to young people of various ages about what they love about Dartmouth Park. They also discussed how some of the disused spaces across the neighbourhood could be enhanced and made more welcoming.
The feedback received unanimously showed that everyone likes and values the youth centre. Some of the young people who have lived in the area all their lives also emphasised that there is a good sense of community. One 19 year old resident from Whittington Estate said
“The youth centre helped me with my coursework at school and with CV building. They helped me with everything and now I am a volunteer here. It keeps me motivated.’
