It's a real honour to be asked to be a patron of MMBB. I'm impressed by the work of MMBB because it draws on the passions and energy of young people, helping them by focusing on their goals. It's not about dictating to young people, or providing a static and unresponsive service. MMBB asks each individual what their ambitions are, and works to make them a reality.
It's only by treating people as individuals, and harnessing their individual talents, that we'll change our communities and society for the better. Too often young people in our community of south London are demonised, or ignored. The positivity, high standards, and care that MMBB offers is making a real difference, and it deserves our support.
