As many of you know, 2016 marks the 25th anniversary of The Door Youth Project! Since we opened in 1991, thousands of young people, parents, carers and families have found safety and a friendly ear from our professional Youthworkers, family support workers, tutors and volunteer mentors.
To celebrate this milestone, we launched our 25 and Counting campaign back in November, and planning has started for some big celebrations including an exhibition between 18th and 22nd of May celebrating our work over the last 25 years.
However we cannot do it alone. We are looking for anyone who’s life has been transformed by The Door over the past 25 years
Chief Executive, Barrie Voyce said – “We always love hearing stories of people who came to The Door when they were a teenager, from anyone who had a counsellor or mentor that helped them when they were facing tough times. No story is too small. Maybe someone learnt a skill through training with us, and is now running their own business. Or, like our patron Mary-Jess Leaverland, perhaps singing in our studio or talent competition gave them the confidence to follow their dreams.”
