WHO WE'VE HELPED

Some of the individuals whose lives have been turned around with the help of the Trent Bridge Community Trust

HELPING PREVENT JUVENILE CRIME IN OUR COMMUNITY

After joining Positive Futures, things really began to turn around for Jackson. One-to-one mentoring and the active role he played in community activities were integral in helping Jackson get back on track, with a future he could look forward to.

“My mum was threatened with losing the house if my behaviour continued, and I was close to getting a criminal record. After being involved in Positive Futures, my behaviour has improved, and I haven’t been in trouble with the police since.”
Jackson, age 11.

INSPIRING THROUGH EDUCATION

A combination of ADHD and Autism meant that Aaron struggled to build friendships, and studying was tough. Positive Futures stepped in with one-to-one specialist educational support, and encouraged him to give after school activities a try. The results have been life changing, both in the classroom and the playground.

“We found Aaron’s situation difficult and there was a lot of pressure on us as a family. Positive Futures has been a great support. It’s helped his confidence and attitude, and he now socialises more with other kids locally. Their work has benefited us as a whole family, not just with Aaron.”
Aaron’s Mum.

INSPIRING LOCAL COMMUNITIES

Fifteen youngsters were recruited to take part in a Positive Futures local community project. The aim was to turn wasteland into a beautiful nature trail for patients at a Dementia care home.

The young people spent three days tackling the project – clearing shrubs, making pathways, hand-building & installing bird boxes and distributing three tonnes of wood chip.

“Initially I wasn’t keen on taking part in this project, but at the end when some of the residents were able to get out of the home and sit on the benches, I felt proud. We had done this, and they were able to enjoy it.”
Kiah, age 14.
