One young resident recently commented: "I really like living here; it's great to have that community feel, that there's activities I can go and join in with and staff on hand to help if i need it but I've got my own space as well. This scheme has turned a negative situation into a positicve one for me; I'm training to be a youth worker myself now and it's the help and support I've had here that has inspired me to do that".
