9:00am Tuesday 19th March 2013 in News
A charity’s new flagship site will be opened by the Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Dale Smith, this week.
The Joint Activities & Motor Education Service (JAMES) started with an aim to reduce the number of young people going into custody. For nearly 30 years it has worked with ‘at risk’ young people and their families in the Bradford district.
Since its founder Eric Gibbs MBE passed away two years ago, JAMES staff have worked hard to fulfil his legacy.
Chairman of the Youth Panel for Bradford and Keighley, Gill Arnold, said: “We do not acknowledge and celebrate enough the amazing work which is undertaken by one of the longest established youth organisations in Bradford.”
JAMES delivers a range of programmes tailored to young people.
The new site is at Highfield Garage in Frizinghall.
