Area

Funding amount

£3,000


Purpose

To ensure participants understand the risks of drug and alcohol.

Quick summary

The funding was primarily to cover loss of income due to COVID restrictions as well as making sure the building was COVID secure so when restrictions were eased sessions could be held.


The participants have been able to understand the risks of drugs and alcohol consumption and have learnt good communication skills in order to deal with formal situations and friendships. Individuals have been provided with the tools they need to manage the challenging and emotional situations precipitated by the COVID restrictions. The interventions will have a positive impact on the young people and provide them with the tools they need to progress into adulthood.

Due to COVID restrictions only 15 young people were allowed to attend each sessions. All young people that attended were between the ages of 8-18.
