From TDC's Caroline Vitta
Lauran is regularly keen to get involved in her community and has taken part in numerous opportunities with us in TDC. In December 2020 she got involved with our Youth Social Action Project and through this supported the Give Street Project donation day in Hanover where she helped with taking donations form the public and took a lead in getting them sorted in bags. She is also getting involved with a similar day at the 67 centre in October.
Lauran took part in the Be the Change Young Leaders course in the summer and helped write a Youth Led Grants bid to help get some money to help other young people put their social action project ideas into practice.
She has also helped with several consultation sessions to give feedback on how to improve services for others – these include the library consultation, feedback on health services and our own Brighton Streets evaluation.
She also helps out at the Crew Club and often supports community events in Whitehawk and is enthusiastic about giving support to her community where she can.
