This March we are one of the featured charities at Tesco, Llandrindod Wells.  Please consider us for your voting token!

We run Touch Trust sessions (a recognised programme including gentle massage, music, movement and dance, as well as light, colour, sound and smell to stimulate the senses) – a fun and valued time for children, families together and adults.

Funds will go to running our sessions in Llandrindod Wells and Knighton, and beginning soon in Newtown.

 

Big impact for young people in Newtown! – 08/03/2019

 

Different, not like a social worker…

Our work in Newtown is making a big difference in some young people’s lives.  3 recent people’s stories show what we can do together with our worker Neil being there for young people:

  • trusting positive relationships developed
  • one person on a College 2-year course
  • linked some people with CAIS or Kaleidoscope (specialist charities) to address cannabis and other drug misuse
  • confidence built up
  • one now has a work qualification
  • one in full-time work
  • another wants to find employment and positive role models.

Our project is funded by Powys Drugs and Alcohol Council.
