The Avenue's Youth Project

6 July 2016 - 4:00pm

Thank you to the 28 residents who responded to our call-out for comments on a request to QPCC by The Avenues Youth Project for funding. The comments received were unanimously in favour, at a council meeting on Jun 16th QPCC councillors voted to approve a grant to The Avenues of £20,000 for the year 2016/17. 

The urgent request from The Avenues came in the wake of a decision by Westminster City Council to stop funding to what QPCC believes is a vital service. The QPCC grant will be put towards the salary of a senior youth worker and will be match-funded by The Avenues - meaning each pound contributed by Queen's Park residents via the QPCC must be matched by fundraising from other sources.
