Support

My parents was from a non-english background, and English being their second language. In year 8 I faced issues with school work, and my anger. I attended an education project, this replaced formal schooling. I was a quite person when mixing with people and talking in class. We did confidence building exercises both 1-1 and in a group, as well as games, outdoor activities e.g. going on a day out. I have gained a lot working with Lisa and feel I have built my confidence and I am able to express myself. Continual support from different services helps to develop and build on skills and knowledge to get qualifications and a job.

Female, age 17

Experiencing difficulties at secondary school and at home, this resulted in school exclusion in year 9. For the time I worked with Lisa, she was a kind person, hard working and I feel if ever I needed her I can turn to Lisa and it’s been a pleasure working with her. The relationship was not close at first but this grew as I did. Now in 2012 continuing to complete G.C.S.E and go college.

Female, age 16

I took part in a 6 week workshop with Lisa in 2012 my confidence was a bit was low, I had low motivation levels it took a lot of effort to do things. Since getting support from Lisa Im now more organized, focused, and my confidence has increased. I am getting good grades at school, I’m the ‘female youth group team leader’ for ME1 PPD Ltd youth forum group. I was involved in recruiting another 16 members too. Now, 16 years old I’m focusing on completing my G.C.S.E’s as I want to study too become a midwife.

Female, age 16

Working with Lisa at Cooluk project in 2007-2009 was fun, she is a lovely person to work with.

Lisa helped me with a lot of exercises for example maths, English, and also helped me build my confidence. I was a quite person when integrating with people and talking in class. We did confidence building exercises both 1-1 and in a group, as well as games, outdoor activities e.g. going on a day out. I have gained a lot working with Lisa and feel I have built my confidence and I am able to express myself.

The time I worked with Lisa she has been a kind person, hardworking and I feel if I ever need her I can turn to Lisa and it’s been a pleasure to work with her.

Female, age 17(January 2012)

I think Lisa is one of those people that is needed in every city in the UK, she has shown she cares a lot for the young people in the community despite most adults that have given up on them, we need world leaders that can support and nurture our young people and Lisa is one within our community, young people will reach far if we have enough Lisa’s in the world.

Male, age 21 (January 2012)
