I attended the Take A Stand event in Thornton Heath earlier today. The purpose of the event was to give young people in the locality a chance to find out about some of the many activities and services that are available for them.
I spoke to a number of young peoples support groups at the event. These groups are reliant on Childrens Fund money from the council. It is important that these groups do receive adequate funding in March 2008 to continue their excellent work.
