On 1 April at 7.30pm our speaker was Christie Spurling, founder of N-Gage charity. We heard a bit about his own story and he described his work in Manchester to help support young people.
Christie Spurling founded N-Gage in 2006 in response to his own experiences of educational exclusion.
N-Gage is a Manchester based charity that gives young people at risk of educational or social exclusion opportunities and skills to achieve their full potential. It provides flexible and targeted approaches to anti-social behaviour and educational exclusion.
Christie gave real insight into the issues facing young people, and the importance of personal consistent positive support to young people who most need it. He also gave useful information on how to ask for and maintain funding for important projects
It was a pleasure to welcome him to RTK, and as he would like to visit Wandsworth, we hope to see him face to face in the future.
