Frogmore Welcomes XLP to Stratford Shopping Centre

The charity XLP is coming to Stratford Shopping Centre and will be creating an environment to help young people growing up on inner-city estates.

XLP is opening a base in Frogmore’s Stratford Shopping Centre, opposite Sports Direct. XLP will be offering support and guidance to young people in the local area, through mentoring, theatre, art and other workshops. Their aim is to address issues faced by young people, which can be complex and challenging. They promote the building of positive, consistent relationships which can restore a young person’s trust in people and encourage them to set positive goals and work hard to achieve.

Through sessions such as Girls Dance Class, Fencing and Young Leader classes, the charity aim to become show young people of Stratford how to reach their full potential.
