Leanne Keane, Community and Partnerships Manager for Great Places Housing Group said: “Great Places is pleased to be working in partnership with Oldham Athletic Community Trust. We have a commitment to try and improve the lives of the people who live in our homes and our communities. By engaging the community at a young age it will help to influence their aspirations and have an impact on the future in the longer term. The sessions that have been carried out over the past year with the young people really tackle the issues that our young people are facing at this current time and with the amount of people attending each week it shows it’s a well needed provision.”
Martin Vose, OACT Head Of Community, commented: “We are delighted to continue to work alongside Great Places Housing to support our weekly youth engagement session. The funding from Great Places allows us to look ahead and plan long term, providing much needed re-assurance and security to the project and in turn the young people who attend.”
