Our Kickstart programme aims to show young people there are different life choices available to them, by providing outdoor activities that may otherwise be inaccessible to them due to poor social connections and a lack of finances. Tackling alcohol related harm with outdoor adventures can help prevent young people from following poor examples and potentially avoid, or reduce, their own misuse of alcohol, thus providing them with the opportunity to improve their prospects.
Kickstart helps support young people in Moray who struggle with (or have the potential to) issues related to the misuse of alcohol; either within their family environment or through personal use. In 2018 we were delighted to receive two separate funding grants to enable us to delivery Kickstart programmes in Moray.
As well as being listed on our website, these programmes are generally advertised on our Facebook page and Facebook group and are also sent out to our mailing list which you can sign up to here. If you require any further information, please email us.
In February 2018, we were successful in winning tsiMORAY’s #YouChoose campaign and received funding to deliver two programmes for young people affected by alcohol. We also received a generous grant of £9,000 from the Scotch Whisky Action Fund.
