Jasmine, Tyriq And Hasan are all good friends.

They all grew up together on the same estate in Luton
and went to the same high SCHOOL.

After school and at weekends they like to go for food, to the local park and just hang out together.

Tyriq is 16 years old. He has lived with his foster carer, Andrea,
for more than 5 years. It is just the two of them and they get on well. Tyriq doesn’t really see his family. He is a Child Looked After and often has meetings with Social Workers.

Tyriq is a huge football fan; always watching, playing and talking about football. He gets on well with his football coach.

Tyriq works part time in the local Nisa and this has helped his confidence. He gets on okay at school and is a chilled person.But does smoke a lot of weed.

Jasmine is 16 years old, lives with her mum, dad and older brother. Her parents work a lot and money is tight. Jasmine spends a lot of her time out with friends.

Jasmine likes to post on Snapchat and Instagram. She struggles with her confidence and feels better when she is in a group.

She is talented at sports and wants to be a PE Teacher. She gets on really well with Miss Hill, her PE teacher at school.

Hasan is 15 years old and lives with his mum. He is the oldest of 5 children.

He has a big family that live all over Luton. Most people of his family. He spends a lot of time with his cousin Dylan, who is also 15.

Hasan can be pretty-loud and is ‘the joker’ of the group. Hasan finds school difficult and often kicks-off in class. He is now going to an alternative provision during the week to help with his Maths and English.
