Serving tea and toast at The Arches

"What I’ve noticed about The Arches is the respect and humanity shown towards the young people from the Youth Offending Team. I’m aware the project is underpinned by Christian ideals and I for one have been wary of such projects. However, I’ve found that Christianity here simply manifests itself in the positive and understanding way young people are treated. The scheme encourages young people to feel good about themselves and for the time they’re there, it’s made clear that what they’re doing goes to help others less fortunate than themselves."
