HISTORY OF BREATHE

This project was initiated due to a variety of circumstances. It is a needs led initiative involving the community.

  • Firstly the expressed wishes of young people from the local area who had become increasinly aware of the lack of opportunities for young people in the community.
  • Secondly a consultation was carried out with young people who attend Rock Steady (a youth club based in the church for P7, S1 & S2) mainly S2,s who were about to leave,the results were that none of them had anything positive to move on to once they started S3. The Church also realised that although an average of 25 young people were attending Rock Steady every Friday night there were no other links being made to support these young people.
  • Thirdly through being actively involved in various community partnerships the main concerns of the local community were young people involved in Anti-Social Behaviour, and there were extremely limited resources to deal with this.
