A Customer’s View of Warm and Well

A huge thank you for arranging the central heating for mum, and chasing up the problem with her lounge ceiling.  The company that ended up fixing her ceiling were amazing and did a wonderful job (one even came back the week after it was completed to give her an 80th Birthday card!).  She still can’t believe she can get up in the middle of the night and be warm. It’s a luxury to her, one which she simply wouldn’t have been able to afford on her income. 

What you do really does make a difference, so thank you.

Zebs Youth Centre in Truro

Open access youth sessions on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings. Zebs is used by young people from ages 10-19 and is staffed by 2 workers with a few volunteers depending on which day.  It is also used by a number of other organisations and projects at other times during the week. They have 3 floors;

Basement – chill out area with sofas, xbox, pool table, computer room and 1 to 1 room

Ground floor – café area with kitchen, tables and chairs etc

Top floor – Music rehearsal area and separate recording studio

They don’t have a specialist music worker but are looking at working with volunteers and other organisations who might be able to offer tuition/therapy. Currently they open the music studio under supervision of a worker or trusted volunteer and young people are free to use the equipment. The studio is undergoing bit of a sort out, so they are always very welcoming of anyone who has more knowledge of the equipment than they do. https://www.youngpeoplecornwall.org/programmes/zebs/  or Luke.Workman@ypc.org.uk
