Blue Light is a registered charity that works in partnership with the police to deliver an extensive range of youth programmes and activities.
The goals of Blue Light are to reduce the incidence of young people becoming an offender or victim of crime; and to encourage better relations between the police, young people, their parents and the community.
This is achieved by organising and running a variety of supervised programmes targeting youth at risk, life-skills, crime reduction, and cultural, social, sporting and educational activities in an environment free from alcohol, drugs and violence.
One particular programme, Youth Driver Navigation, is designed to help support young people to ultimately get their full drivers licence. It is especially designed for those young people who may not have access to the right support to be able to learn to drive, e.g. a vehicle or someone to teach them to drive.
Blue Light has received $5,000 of Acorn Foundation funding from the G&S Laing and M McGowan, and Tindall Foundation funds.
