Annie’s story

Annie started going to WECIL youth groups when she was thirteen years old. Now fifteen, she still loves the groups and is a regular attendee.

‘I can just be myself’

“At first, I was quite shy and unconfident starting at the WECIL youth group. But everyone was very welcoming – I’ve made lots of new friends here.

“We do lots of different things – painting, cooking, running around, and even trips to other places. I love chatting to my friends here and the staff are really nice. I know I’m in a safe place, and can just be myself. I even bring my pets Bobby and Sylvester!”
