  • Mission statement

    This project will help young people acquire the self-esteem, skills and self-confidence to cope with the personal and social problems during the transition from childhood to adulthood, and enable them to play an active role in the community where they live.

    The principle of the charity has always been to provide a regular service for local young people within their community, particularly for those who are socially, educationally and economically marginalised.

    To achieve this, our aims are:

    To provide a drop-in service where young people can access non discriminatory, non judgemental, high quality support and information in a warm, safe and welcoming environment. Where they can enhance their life skills, develop their interests and socialise with their peers and positive role models.

    To empower young people to make decisions and explore options and opportunities. To develop a sense of place for themselves within their community, society and the local environment.
    To deliver accredited and vocational training in an informal setting and at a pace that suits each individual.

    To inspire young people to take on the challenge of adventure activities with the aim of developing interests, enhancing confidence, self esteem and team skills.

    To represent the needs and views of young people within their community and to work in partnership with them to action ideas.
