“As part of the social enterprise project I had the chance to work in a group for the first time, socialise with other young people and also gain new skills.
The rock climbing project was a great experience and I learnt about how to start your own business.
If there any other young people who want to join the social enterprise group in seeing how to create your own business I would advise them to do it as you learn so much. It involves a lot of team work so you need to make sure you get your voice heard and be prepared for some hard, interesting work in getting the business started.
I also earned time banking credits which I used towards a trip to Alton towers. I had such a great time and I hadn’t been there since school.”
“GISDA has helped me – I have been on a Prince’s Trust course, where I learnt kayaking – I have experienced drama both as a performer and as part of an audience. GISDA has given me a nice place to live and helped me to become involved with grass roots football coaching. They have also helped me prepare for my application to join the Marines. GISDA has given me more opportunities than I would have had otherwise, to do things that I enjoy doing rather.”
“GISDA has raised my confidence through activities such as Theatre Forum. I have tried new things that I never thought I would try such as being involved with a social enterprise and being interviewed by the media. They have given me opportunities to visit places that I wouldn’t have been able to go to otherwise. I have also made some fantastic friends.”
