Liam has a disability which effects his vision and is registered blind. However, Liam is an inspiration to the estate as Chair of the Blenheim Gardens Resident Management Organisation (RMO) youth forum which meets each month to direct services for young people living on and surrounding the Blenheim Gardens Estate. 

Location: Brixton, London

One example of this was the introduction of a ‘Xbox challenge evening’ so that young residents can compete against each other in a secure environment.

Liam introduced a traditional games night as a means of a social event for his peers. He is part of the estate football team and when called upon is only too happy to help out. He is excellent at marketing what is being provided on the estate and is frequently seen door knocking to let people know what is happening on the estate and encouraging them to get involved.

Liam’s sister is also disabled and recognising there was a gap in the estate for children aged between 5 – 10 years, helped to introduce a Saturday play scheme. The play scheme has been a success and attracts 15-20 children each week.  Liam also volunteers to help out the qualified play leaders and shops for residents with mobility issues when the weather prevents them from doing so themselves.
