New Resources for Folkestone Youth Project

The Folkestone Youth Project has been given a boost with new resources to help support young people thanks to a community grant from Kent County Council.

The Folkestone Youth Project (The Shed) have been able to expand their preventative education resources and work with children and young people aged 10-25 thanks to the KCC grant.

Smoking amongst 10-14 year olds is on the increase in the area and the resources provide a fun and interactive way to deliver education and to promote positive choices.

"The resources have enabled young people to access information that they may not otherwise access anywhere else due to exclusion, negative influences or disadvantage”. Ruth Tyler

Bob Neaves KCC member for Folkestone South was more than happy to support this worthy project with a grant of £732.

The funding was used to purchase a variety of resources including leaflets, posters, cue cards and artificial lungs.
