Al-Hurraya are ambassadors of culturally specific intervention methods. We take pride in providing services which have a core element of culture to them. We understand there are many cultural barriers that may deter a person from seeking support, and using these methods we work in a client focused way to address these.
Our service uses specialised solution focused techniques which encourage service users to invest in their own relationship with to make positive changes. We aim to support and educate them by increasing awareness and providing harm minimisation strategies, such as early prevention workshops, education around gang violence and drug abuse, cultural deprivation and radicalisation, one to one peer mentoring and counselling support. Al-Hurraya also works with specialised services to support community integration.
Another area of focus for Al-Hurraya is to tackle cultural issues which may be linked to substance misuse and abuse. The relationship between drugs/alcohol and cultural identification suggest a negative correlation.
