PACT stands for the North Wales Police and Community Trust, which was launched in 1998 to support community initiatives which aim to improve the quality of life by reducing crime and fear of crime in all the communities of North Wales.

The Youth Shedz project is a multi-award-winning initiative that provides a safe place for young people to explore who they are, to develop pro-social relationships with suitable role models, develop and learn new skills.

A North Wales Police West Conwy spokesperson said: “Big thank you to Bethan and Louise who continue to work hard and provide the weekly support for the children that attend and come up with new ideas and games to keep everyone occupied.

“On May 2 the project will also be holding a five a side football tournament in order to raise awareness of Mental Health.

“During this event there will be a number of partnership agencies involved and refreshments will also be available.”
