  • Encourage the principle of helping people to help themselves.
  • Provide practical and material assistance to individuals and families in crisis.
  • Build relationships and ties of friendship and support between CST clients and with other members of the local community.
  • Act as a referral centre by collecting and disseminating information, directing people to individuals or groups who may assist them.
  • Work collaboratively with other service providers and organisations within the community.
  • Provide facilities where people can meet and share together public and private issues.
  • Develop educational, welfare, cultural and recreational programmes to build capacity within the community.
