Reparation Coordinator – Wandsworth Youth Offending Team

“She (Anita Russell) and the other volunteers at Doverhouse Lions provide a supportive and encouraging atmosphere for all the young people they work with. They do not discriminate against the young offender and accept them into the club as they would any other young person, demonstrating a level of patience and tenacity, which is a much needed quality when working with young people who have committed an offence.

I know that whatever the level of vulnerability of the young person, if they have a keen interest/skills in football, then I can place them at Doverhouse Lions confident that they will be given the help and guidance they need.”
