Equipping young people to make drug free choices

WELCOME!

Young people navigate their way through many challenges – including what to do if they are offered a drug. Both legal and illegal substances are freely available in this internet age, whoever you are or wherever you live.

In response to this huge challenge, our mission is to support, educate and equip young people with the skills they need to make healthy choices when faced with decisions about legal and illegal drugs.
