Say hello to Carpenter's Arms
We have recently started Street2Life, a team that reaches out to young people in various ways alerting them to the dangers of substance misuse.
Their message is simple and powerful coming from a background of addiction and now fuelled with a passion to see teenagers not go down the same destructive route that they went down years ago.
Whenever I have been out with them speaking to youth I have been amazed at how quiet the room goes when they talk. You could hear a pin drop, they speak with an authority that many wish they had in those groups.
As they recount their life experiences and expose many myths about the Drug and Alcohol culture you can see the message getting home. All the Teachers, Youth Offending Team leaders, Ministers etc have been effusive in their appreciation and have asked whether we can come again.
If you would like to invite the Outreach Team to speak in one of your groups, please contact us.
