Painting and decorating

3rd November 2017

We’ve established a new group for boys and young men in South Bristol, the first members experiencing challenges around behaviour and anger management.

In its early days, the ages range from 13 to 19, along with a 22 year old volunteer who’s having a very positive influence on the group. They’re using projects to learn new life skills, such as painting and decorating LPW’s youth and play space at The Park. The group designed the kaleidoscopic coloured brick scheme, while their Engagement Worker David Hackett sourced the paint.

Aiming to address mental health issues and develop their relationship building, anger management and behavioural skills, the group will be moving onto other project-based work, including cooking and healthy eating.
