Forest Town have been running as a charitable organisation for 10 years and work closely with other agencies in the community such as the local police and local church groups. Over 40 young people are involved at the centre every week and have the opportunity to take part in social education programmes and team building skills. Forest Town will soon be run on a voluntary basis and so their VIY project has come at the perfect time, bringing positivity with change.
