Wests Group Macarthur supports community youth education program

Wests Group Macarthur prides itself on supporting programs that keep the community active and safe and announce a $5,000 commitment to support Youth Solutions’ DAIR (Drug and Alcohol Information and Resilience Skills) program.

The DAIR project is delivered as a series of workshops over several weeks, which aim to educate and develop skills to reduce drug and alcohol related harm. As well as providing drug and alcohol education and safety strategies, the project focuses on mental health and resilience aimed at developing positive coping and self-help seeking skills in young people.

Wests CEO Tony Mathew said the DAIR program was a good fit with Wests Group Macarthur’s community mission. “We are pleased to be able to partner with a hands-on program dedicated to educating and empowering young people to live a life that is healthy and safe.

“Wests Group Macarthur is proud to provide $5,000 toward the DAIR project, a series of educational and practical workshops which aim to develop skills and provide education to reduce drug and alcohol related harm.” Mr Mathew said.

Youth Solutions Chief Executive Officer Geraldine Dean thanked Wests Group Macarthur for its generosity and support of the vital community program.

“A core part of Youth Solutions’ work is the health education projects it delivers with about 2000 young people each year,” Mrs Dean said. “One of those projects is DAIR, which Wests has proudly provided $5000 towards, that aims to educate young people and give them strategies to deal with and prevent themselves from drug and alcohol related harm.”

Youth Solutions also offers an information and referral service, linking people in the Macarthur and Wingecarribee areas with the information, support and services they need.

Wests Group believes in empowering our community with social support, education and donations through the adoption of tailored strategies to ensure the needs of individuals, families and sporting groups are met.

Wests Group Macarthur
