We will strive to ensure that all our provision is developmental, educational and conscious raising for young people.

We will aim is to empower young people through personal development, critical social education, confidence and social skill building, to help them develop their sense of self-worth and respect which in turn will benefit themselves, their families and our wider community.

These personal and community benefits will become evident in the following outcomes:

Reduced drug taking through harm reduction practices
Belonging to the community/Pride
Life & Practical skills
Greater Cultural awareness
Informed life choices
