Challenges Motorcycle project. Partners made referrals but some young people did not show up. At risk or vulnerable young people hard to engage. Some young people attending were known for anti-social/criminal behaviour and put others off. Generator got stolen Cookery Project The theory part of cooking session was too long for some young people and they got bored. However the practical sessions were fantastic and they all got stuck in and arrived early for the sessions.
