Chuka Umunna Launches the Well Centre

October 6th, 2011

After a frantic day of furniture construction, painting, shopping and tidying the Well Centre finally launched last night as local MP Chuka Umunna came down to officially open the Well Centre.  The Redthread Youth Panel – who have been working on the project from the outset – did an amazing job running the evening and showed Chuka around the Centre.

Speaking at the launch Chuka Umunna MP said:  “It is fantastic news that the Well Centre will be opening its doors and I am very pleased to be officially launching it this week.  It will make a real difference in improving health and wellbeing for our young people locally, expanding access to services and raising awareness of health issues.”

John Poyton, Redthread Director, said: “Recent events have shown the importance of targeted youth support and early intervention.  The Well Centre aims to provide a holistic service that empowers and supports young people to be healthy, safe and happy”.
