Treo Port Láirge Ltd is community-based organisation core funded by the Department of Justice and Equality through the Probation Service. The main aim of Treo is to reduce criminal activity among the people in its target group of 16 to 23 year olds thus contributing to making Waterford a safer community to live. Treo offers to each of its participant’s educational, social, and vocational support while challenging their offending attitudes and behaviour.
Treo will be in operation 21 year in 2020. As part of the celebrations we would like to create a portrait in film that captures the aims and spirit of TREO. The coming together and making of this short film, will tap into the reality and the daily life situations our participants find themselves in; allowing them to see their future away from danger while bringing to the fore their basic needs in a holistic approach. The film will contain interviews with young people whose lives have been changed by their involvement in TREO, key workers who administer the programme and past users of the service who have moved on and created new lives for themselves. The film will show the premises and activities of the young people such as the woodcraft and service workshop, learning to cook, computer usage, social activities, art, music classes and much more
