who we are and what we do
“I can always tell which young people have been to A.P.P.L.E. because they are so open-minded. They will try all activities and foods, and understand the importance of difference. A.P.P.L.E. provides them with an opportunity to experiment with art, food, friendships and sports in a tolerant and non-judgemental environment. The effect that this has on the young people is both striking and inspiring.”
Colin Brent - LBE Youth and Connexions
