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.
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.
Ruth Tyler from the Folkestone Youth Project said: “The resources have enabled young people to access information that they may not otherwise access anywhere else due to exclusion, negative influences or disadvantage.”
