We centre anti-racism and the experiences of Black and PoC young people in schools, at work and in personal lives through our Mental Health Service and our Education Program, Restless Natives program, and Youth Work. Our governmental and sectoral advocacy is an extension of these priorities and focuses on upending the entrenched inequalities and structural exclusion that have cut Black and PoC young people out of decision-making that shapes our lives.

Our growing presence in Scotland emanates from this unique position – as both an advocacy organisation and a community organisation. Taking on challenging demands in a world that we need to navigate to safeguard young people and maintain our life changing services.
