'Why do you make me look at injustice? Why do you tolerate wrong? Destruction and violence are before me; there is strife, and conflict abounds. Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails. The wicked hem in the righteous, so that justice is perverted.

Football sessions on Brixton Estate

This week was the fourth week that Josh Grear, the Brixton Team Leader, has teamed up with another youth worker to play football on the pitch in the centre of the Loughborough Estate. They head down to the pitch twice a week and run sessions with youth that happen to be in the area. 
This week there were about 14 boys who were keen to play. The group stayed for about 20 mins and were aged about 14 years and upwards.
Some of the lads had met Josh before and recognised him from the detached youth work that he has been doing around the estate. However some of the group were completely new.
