‘This is me’

Kemoy Walker first started coming to the Powerhouse aged ‘around 13’ after noticing the ‘really big building’ whilst at the park: ‘What goes on there? What is that building?’. His friends told him it was a youth club, and from then he started coming to the Powerhouse, getting involved in the various activities on offer, and volunteering – ‘wow, you know, this is me’.

But, young people have always been at its heart, which Kemoy puts down to the Powerhouse ethos: the care and support that it offers young people which ensures they continue to utilise it as a place to meet, socialise, and get involved with the numerous activities and opportunities.
