We understand the people we work with have multiple and complex needs, which is why our work not only focuses on the issues presented, but on the whole person and the different factors impacting their lives. This holistic approach empowers our participants to unlock the resilience and skills they need to manage difficult life circumstances.  

Mental wellbeing is about how you're feeling right now, and how well you can cope with daily life. When facing mental health issues such as depression, anxiety or PTSD, substance use issues, or difficult life circumstances such as homelessness and involvement in the criminal justice system - improving mental and physical wellbeing is an added challenge the people we work with face.

We encourage physical wellness through outdoor adventures which supports our participants journey to improved wellbeing. At the end of their journey, the people we support show positive self-confidence, improved relationships and increased stability in their daily life. This resilience allows them to create lasting relationships with other service providers as they move forward.
