All this week, each day we have some reflections on our summer at Urban Hope. They are short reflections but reflect the stories of some young people and interactions we have with them.

He tells me there’s nothing to do, nowhere to go, he’s bored
Mum is working shifts and dad clocked off years ago
He kicks ball in a broken estate cage from lunch to fried chicken dinner
He watches the ‘olders’ circle in the dance of the crack vultures,
they look like eagles to him, riding their peddle-bikes hands-free counting notes and catching joke.
