Its great to see young people doing things that support their local community or local good causes.
Recently, Support Cambridgeshire were fortunate enough to be invited as a Dragon, sitting on a panel and assessing Social Action Projects devised, implemented and delivered by young people, aged 16-17, as part of the National Citizenship Service.
The group we assessed consisted of 19 young people, who had clearly made the connection between mental health and homelessness.
Their plan was double headed – a sleep out at the Graffham Water Centre in Huntingdonshire scheduled for the 21st August 2017, followed by a music event on the 22nd or 23rd, all in support of MIND.
We found the group to be enthusiastic, committed and intuitive, and we have no doubt their plan will be a roaring success.
