Young Addaction Halton
4th Jan 2017
Last year, d3t linked up with Young Addaction Halton to support the fantastic work they do within our community. Based at Grangeway Youth Centre, YA Halton offers a specialist drug & alcohol service for young people 10-19 years.
YA Halton delivers a specialist service helping young substance misusers on a one-to-one basis. This runs alongside education, early intervention and harm reduction, which is aimed at schools, colleges and the wider community.
The centre also delivers a wide range of programmes including the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, Amy Winehouse Resilience Programme, Halton Integrated Youth Provision and the Mayor’s Awards. Advice and signposting to other support agencies means that the centre has become a one-stop-shop for many young people in the area.
At Christmas we decided to make a cash donation to the centre, in lieu of sending cards. We also offered the centre the d3t pool table – which appears to have been well received! Our General Manager, Richard Badger and Technical Director, Andy Booth dropped by for a game…
Many thanks to the Young Addaction team and of course to the young people there – who completely trounced us on the pool table!
