Southern Brooks Community Partnership Celebrations

The Trustees and staff of Southern Brooks Community Partnership welcomed Jack to a celebration event to say thank you to their funding partners and supporters. This gave some of the families, young people and community organisations they have supported the chance to explain the difference Southern Brooks had made to their lives and their local communities.

Julie Close, SBCP Director, spoke of the wide variety of ways in which young people and families have been supported and their regret that funding cuts will inevitably force some aspects of their work to be reduced or cease altogether in the coming months.

Jack congratulated Southern Brooks on the vital impact their family solutions work, targeted support and learning opportunities for young people and infrastructure investment for community groups has had on the lives of people within his constituency.

As an immediate example of peer work with young people, Jack presented three South Glos Award units for Southern Brooks Detached Youth Work in Patchway and EDEXCEL BTEC Peer Mentoring Certificates to the first 6 graduates of 54 learners from Patchway Community College and Bradley Stoke Community School.

If you would like additional information about the work of Southern Brooks Community Partnership and the wide variety ways in which they may be able to help young people, your family or community group, please contact them on 01454 868 570 or www.southernbrooks.org.uk

In London and the south-east,...
