An amazing community-based programme that supports previous offenders aged 16-23, who wish to stay out of trouble and move forward with their lives.
It has had a major impact.
TREO looked on the area of enterprise within the community as a way of delivering support and direction. Innovative community enterprises that have been developed include:
- Flat pack assembly service
- Lawnmower maintenance services
- Bicycle repair service
- Kindling service for older people
The community benefit for Waterford of such focused services is very evident with strong linkages with many community groups and projects. However it’s real value is in the way it enables the young people to make positive choices and move forward with their lives.
Innovation, care and compassion to support positive behavioural change.
