“He has really matured. No doubt your positive influence has gone a long way to shape him, for which I am forever grateful.”
Youth Participant Parent (Hi-Road Studios, @Docklands)
"ACE is delivering truly incredible work. Most provisions share that they are working with the most hard to reach but ACE is actually engaging with the most hard to reach, developing positive and trusting relationships especially with vulnerable young people, young offenders, at risk of offending and young people affiliated to gang crime from the BME community. I see young people make profound changes socially and behaviourally through ACE's therapeutic and relational approach. Young people create positive lifestyles for themselves as well as gaining transferable skills ... Truly commendable work."
