"The word ‘Future’ means we have a future and an aim to succeed in the future. Being a part of Barking and Dagenham’s Young People’s Development Group, makes me feel I have made adult decisions and the Youth Zone is our space, for us, and if you have a great logo, more people will come. It helps us feel confident that we’ve achieved something that we thought we could never achieve in life."
