A PROJECT which offers accommodation and training for homeless youngsters has been awarded �10,000.
Residents at the Welwyn Hatfield Foyer, located at Goldings House in Link Drive, Hatfield, have been given the money by the Hertfordshire Children's Trust Partnership to fund a number of training projects, including recording their own EP.
Known as "Project Tower", residents will write and record their own songs on a variety of themes, including friendship, gang culture, violence and dysfunctional families.
The grant will also be used to offer occupants free training sessions in beauty therapy and martial arts.
