how we work...

Our Approach

Young people like that we provide accurate up-to-date facts that are relevant to their age, lifestyle, experience and stage of learning. Our delivery is experiential, interactive, and where possible needs-led. We are not a ‘just say no’ organisation, but neither do we want young people to suffer the negative consequences that some risk-taking behaviours, including the misuse of drugs and alcohol can bring about.

We are not a treatment agency but we will help you find someone that can help you. We offer information and education rather than any treatment or support. We will sign post enquiries to other helping agencies where appropriate.

Fast Forward has a clear commitment to the GIRFEC principles (Getting it Right for Every Child) and our project work is aligned to these and to supporting The Curriculum for Excellence. We are pleased to be contributing to the national outcomes for Scotland’s young people.
