Lansdowne Youth Centre in Stockwell is run by Enterprise UnLtd. They are running informal learning throughout the date and evenings with an emphasis on employability and strong local partnerships. Young people on the autistic spectrum from their youth club worked together with peer mentors from Stockwell JobCentrePlus as well as five young women from the neighbouring estate to white wash the walls surrounding the five-aside football pitch at the back of their building. Such was their skill in painting, they spent the last day of their project working with a graffiti artist on new designs for the newly painted walls.
