What are people saying?
  • Teresa, Former Dare Londoner

    “Dare to me is everything! Dare gave me courage and hope. A family. Something I could believe in where my voice mattered. A sense of community. Support. Knowledge. It’s helped me to grow as a person. To be more confident and go for my dreams. It was a challenge at times. But I embraced the journey. I was able to do things I’d never done before. Dare is a blessing.”

  • Tim Saunders

    As you would expect I’ve done monitoring and evaluation training every so often over a long period of time, just to see if there is anything new.  I can remember being bored to tears at the last one I did and that was only a day.  At last, something sensible on Evaluation.  Evaluation is usually the bit that’s left off and it’s all about monitoring.  Not this time. I got plenty out of it.

  • Nathan Otto

    We chose to support London Youth as we believe some young Londoners get a rough deal. Whether it’s because of preconceived perceptions, upbringing or lack of opportunities”

  • Kathryn McKenzie

    Everyone I spoke to either on the day or as they were getting on the coach said what a fantastic time they had and how they were really happy to be part of the project and what a great thing it was that we were all doing it for London Youth.”

  • Kumar Ganesh

    It has been so rewarding supporting young people from our area to get ready for their [Athan 31] pitch. It has definitely strengthened relationships within the community and I have been happy to show young people that they don’t need to be scared of someone in a suit!”
