The Dumbarton Road Corridor Addiction Forum Peer Education group are no strangers to challenging negative perceptions that exist about young people in their area.

Having been involved in Truth About Youth Glasgow, they are continuing their work as part of the national Truth About Youth project.

This video reports from their annual showcase event which brings members oft he community together to look at the amazing work being carried out by this group. Guest included people who had previously worked with the group of young volunteers and new faces who through the event found out more and had their perceptions of young people challenged.

Watch this video to find out more and look out for the interviews with local residents. There are some fantastic examples of the impact these young volunteers have made!
