Didcot TRAIN Youth Project

Life Stories

We have had the privilege of  supporting a great number of young people over the past 14 years. Some of them have gone through very hard times and tough experiences. Here are a few stories and testimonials from those who we have worked with.

Simon (not his real name) – at 14 – We met him on the streets when he used to hang out and cause anti-social behaviour. He engaged well in our service and we built a good relationship with him. Simon left school with no qualifications and his offending increased. He ended up serving a 5 month prison sentence for attempted Robbery.

Andy tells us a little of his story:

Recently a young person who had moved away from Didcot came back into our office. She tried to find an equivalent service to ours in her new location but found there was nothing. She has returned to Didcot and cited access to TRAIN as an important factor in her decision to come back.
