"We recently ran a day for our College and University students around the subject of drugs and how they can negatively impact on their life.
We arranged various events over the day including a visit from the Resilience Voyage bus. This proved to be an incredible experience for our students. The team worked massively hard all day and endured a never ending queue of students and the resulting feedback was fantastic. The talks and interactive events that the students took part in had a real effect and several went back 2 or 3 times. It was such a success we have booked them again for an even bigger event in September."

"As a retired detective sergeant with many years experience in the Met drugs squad and at the sharp end of policing, I wholly endorse the 'prevention before cure' strategy. The Drug Bus in my opinion will assist in guiding the young away from the drug scene"

As quoted from County Gazette
" Hi guys, I visited your bus a few weeks ago, can I say how impressed I was with the way its been set up. The safety aspect of the project is excellent. The content of the session is creative, engaging and interactive. Young people will learn so much and it will be a experience that will stay in their minds for many years. Good luck with this new exciting project."

"I was very impressed by this company. It is a refreshingly different approach to building emotional resilience and coping skills in young people - with the aim of enabling them to be stronger and better equipped to make good choices. The immersive and interactive workshops are unique and designed to really engage young people, with great facilitators able to respond to individual needs. I would highly recommend them to any organisation involved in the education and support of young people."
"Such a great idea.....educating the young (and the older like myself) but in a fun and informative manner.
"This is a fantastic opportunity for schools, youth groups, and the community. As a youth worker I feel strongly that there is not enough work being done for our children/young people re information and workshops in general, so when I heard about Resilience Voyage I had to go see for myself. Fantastic. As a community we should be embracing it with both hands."
The Youth Parliament were really supportive of the Drugs Bus. The idea sparked off some in depth debates which was great but all agreed in theory it sounds really positive. They also thought it was affordable for schools and therefore value for money!
