The Matt Talbot Community Trust is a drug free voluntary organisation. We work with those seeking assistance in relation to issues pertaining to substance abuse and those involved in the criminal justice system. We actively work towards the reintegration of adults back into the community. Central to this is the creation of an environment which recognises the value of an individual within the context of trust, belonging and learning. This in turn enables the development of positive relationships and the ability to make informed choices which in turn will benefit not only themselves but the entire community.
