QPR In the Community Trust are delighted to partner up with Ansar Youth Project, London Blues along with the Metropolitan Police, to provide a vital Police Summer Camp which works in conjunction with the Syria and US Trust summer camps which has helped engage over 200 young people in the borough of Brent.
The Camp which has been running from the 3rd of August until the 11th of September, is every weekday and aims to work with 40-60 young people every day, aged between 10-17 years old.
The camp itself based at Wembley’s youth centre aims to place the young people in informal learning opportunities and to learn to work together as a team through the power of sport, all under the guidance of specialist’s youth work from QPR in the Community Trust.
QPR’s Youth and Communities officer, Francis Aderiye told www.qpr.co.uk: “The initiative has been great, we have been able to work with various organisations, which have helped to respond to the added need and support of the youth work within the borough of Brent.
“However, whilst doing this we have been able to provide the young people the interaction and support of their local football club and trust.”
QPR in the Community Trust will continue to work with London Blue and the Metropolitan police is small pop up sessions which will help provide the local young people with sport and fitness sessions.
