Redbridge young cabinet approve £100,000 of proposals

Members of the Redbridge young cabinet last night passed £100,000 worth of proposals to the council for youth projects including a mental health awareness drive and public safety workshops.

At a meeting in the town hall the eight members voted unanimously to present four initiatives to the full council.

The two major proposals are a series of safety workshops to help reduce crime as well as a programme to encourage awareness of mental health issues amongst young people.

Alongside these, there will be a careers conference to help tackle youth unemployment and a dedicated website for the youth of Redbridge.

The full council will consider whether or not to approve the proposals in April.
