Green Shoots, Besson Street,
What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult for each other?” George Elliot
We all benefit from living in a safe, caring, sharing community. But such communities don’t happen by magic, people create them and often against all odds.
Green Shoots wants to contribute to making New Cross a good place to live, to work and bring up the next generation.At Green Shoots we want to promote a set values that many people believe in - respect, tolerance, supporting each other and sharing - working together to make this happen helps build better communities.
My confidence has grown...
“I’ve got a distinction at level 3 in Communications and Presentation Skills - I did level 2 first, I worked really hard and improved my results at level 3.The course was free with the Family Learning project. People at work have noticed how my confidence has grown and how much better I communicate with staff and the patients I care for. I’ve had a chance to meet new people, tell my story. I got lots of support from other students and the tutors. I want everyone to do this course, especially women who’ve been at home looking after babies.”
