Since 2010, the courses facilitated by Turnip Starfish have played an integral part in the extra-curricular provision offered by Rhondda Cynon Taf’s Youth Engagement and Participation Service... I worked directly with Turnip Starfish as the e3+ Co-ordinator of Treorchy Comprehensive School and the Youth Participation Officer at Ysgol Llanhari... Nick Price and Lexy Jones have inspired and enthused young people, delivering significant results along the way, including increasing self-esteem, improving basic key skills and giving young people a platform to express themselves. I strongly recommend Turnip Starfish.
