Grassroots, Cardiff's city centre youth project down on Charles Street needs your help.

They need your help so that they can help young people in Cardiff, as they've done since 1979.

"Through Grassroots' doors will walk a young person straight out of care, a Big Issue seller, a teenage mum with two kids, a young man just out of prison, a transgender teenager chucked out of the family home, a vulnerable teenager with a black eye and mental health issues, an asylum seeker who's heard about our music studio.

This place definitely needs to stay open! I hate it when places like this are closed down; it's just the government being selfish!
