Sneak Preview to Upper Hill's Health & Wellbeing venture

Due to open to the public shortly, GTDT have been working hard behind the scenes to create our new health and wellbeing site at Upper Hill Street, Liverpool 8.

We have added some much needed TLC to Upper Hill with some fresh paint and blinds, and we are well under way to getting it finished off ahead of our launch.

We will be focusing on the residents within the Upper Hill and surrounding areas, and will be offering special event days.  This will include a mini Clothes Rail, drop in coffee mornings to get to know who we are and what we have to offer.
Find out what courses we have available that you may wish to enrol on at our other sites. Let us hear your thoughts about what you would like to see happening in your local area.

We will be offering free advice on many topics including 'How to save energy and keep warm', 'Healthy eating tips' as well as providing a free Nail shape and polish to those who may fancy a bit of pampering.

Watch this space as GTDT will keep you updated with our progress over the course of the next couple of weeks,

Youth Detached Engagement

These lovely young people who live near the Webster Triangle kept the GTDT Detached Youth Workers engaged, despite the really cold weather and high winds, this group were very upbeat and had a laugh with the workers. Stating that Lisa & Samy walk around all the area's, turn up at their school which is King's Leadership Academy, referred them all  to the Unity Youth Centre and even turn up there and then turn up at their houses to offer support and guidance to some of their parents.

Positive engagement with these amazing young people.

Lisa quoted "I love these young people, there is no end to their talents. Amongst this group there are freerunners, gymnasts, basketball players, basically jack of all talents. They are all characters, who are always polite and just a pleasure to work with".
