Working with young people locally - the CRIB community project

Janette Collins of the CRIB community youth project was welcomed to our December meeting.

Janette explained that her work in and around the Milton Gardens Estate involved around 70 young people.

She was a founding member of the youth club that closed around 1990, and numerous problems beyond her control have severely disrupted efforts to get it re-opened.

She explained that there is a virtually unused Community Hall, and young people still have no local facilities.

The meeting agreed that a representative from Hackney Homes be invited to the next meeting, and to write to all three local councillors to express our support for the youth club and our concern about lack of progress.
