Croydon’s Choose Your Future campaign is driven by young people. It asks you to think about the choices you make – whether it’s about carrying a knife, looking after yourself, or your goals.
Our youth outreach team will be offering face to face activities and support to young people across the borough as part of our programme of summer activities. All activities will observe social distancing in accordance with government guidelines.
