The project has seen up to 16 youths engaged once a week and has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from participants.
“The participants have enjoyed socialising with other people and they’ve enjoyed learning new wood working skills and operating woodworking machinery,” Mrs Ryan said.
“A lot of the people who engage haven’t done woodworking before, we have a range of projects that they can give a go.”
Furniture created during the program has ranged from breakfast tables, to chairs, to an entire outdoor setting created by one eager participant for his mum.
Mrs Ryan said the items created would go to a worthy cause or to a family in need.
“The participants were really happy to donate these chairs,” she said.
