Adam’s supporting young people in Salford

Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end

Scott Adams

Lead Resident Liaison Officer Adam Berry has been doing his bit for youths within the Salford Community. This time it’s a cause close to his heart, The Princes Trust Charity, Fairbridge in Salford. Fairbridge works with young people aged 13-25 that other organisations find difficult to engage – giving them the motivation, self-confidence and skills they need to change their lives.

Working in partnership with his family business, Focus Rider Training, Adam has set up a programme for the Fairbridge young adults to teach them how to ride motorcycles in a safe and correct way. Whilst the plans are in progress for this to happen, Adam was asked if he would like to join in one of the Access Programmes at Fairbridge, which sees the young people take part in activities in a residential break.

Adam joined the young adults on a fantastic rock climbing expedition. Adam said “It’s great to see such a structure for young people that is managed in a laid back way, which is vital for the youth of today”. The young adults get involved in trust, responsibility, and helpfulness to peers exercises.

Adam has been invited back to see how the young adults have evolved in 6 weeks time and to give an inspirational talk at one of the programmes behavioral workshops.

Rukhsana Nabi, a colleague of Adam’s said “We’re very proud of Adam. He is a remarkable young man who is always willing to go the extra mile for the company, our customers and his colleagues. He is an inspiration to us and will be an inspiration for the young people at Fairbridge”.
