Organic

Activities are community led; devised to respond to the needs of a particular group or event and therefore change over time.

Advantaged Thinking

Focus is on positive opportunities and a ‘can do’ attitude to change

Always There

No appointments, registrations or time limits, WBYI is available when young people need the support

Empowerment

Young people are supported by getting involved and taking responsibility for their decisions

Inclusion

Integration with other faiths, cultures and communities is a priority and is introduced in a staged process through community activities
