As we continue to build relationships with other groups (especially younger adults), we teamed up with young people aged 15-17 who came together as a group over a period of one week to take on a number of challenges both in and out of the home. There were 15 young adults and two team leaders over that period and during that time we had lots of work done and time spent in the home talking to our residents, reading stories and lots of time spent listening to our residents telling of their histories.
The young adults from the NCS raised money through sponsorship and other fund raising events and paid for all of the materials, bought a greenhouse and were extremely attentive and kind with everybody. What a fantastic group of young people!!
Between the NCS and The Princes Trust we are being extremely well supported and everyone really enjoys having some younger adults about.
