A Bromley youth centre has received a welcome boost in helping young people to find work.

JusB, based in College Road, has been granted £25,000 towards their work from the Evening Standard and BIG Lottery.

The charity will use the money to visit schools and provide help with job training, CV writing and interview techniques.

Project manager Ned McWhirter said: “Surely it makes sense to invest in these young lives?

“It costs so much more, emotionally, socially and financially to deal with those who have been unemployed.

“We are pleased that we have been awarded this grant to nip problems in the bud so that teenagers can become productive, helpful people in Bromley.”

To help fundraise, to find out about volunteering, or if you are a young person who would like help call 020 8464 2722.
