Four-week scheme offers activities for youngsters
A summer programme for youngsters living on a housing estate in Neasden has been launched at a special event.
Youth Action Day took place at the St Raphael’s Estate to kick-start the four week scheme to keep children out of mischief during the break.
Activities being offered include football coaching, street dancing, film nights, youth forums, a DJ Academy and life coaching sessions.
Organised by Brent Housing Partnership (BHP), the organisation that manages homes owned by Brent Council, the event was attended by Cllr Bobby Thomas, Brent Mayor, and residents both old and young from the estate.
During the day residents and young people were able to visit stalls and receive information about activities and services in their local area including Victim Support, Brent Drug and Alcohol Unit (VRI), the Safer Neighbourhoods Team and BHP’s Warden Service.
The London Fire Brigade also attended and there were activities for young people including balloon making and arts and crafts.
