JST – Just Straight Talk

Just Straight Talk (JST) is a Community Interest Company supporting people across Dudley & wider who are disadvantaged by providing the practical help, support, and motivation they need to address and overcome barriers, turn their lives around and achieve potential.

JST does this by providing practical support, motivation to address and overcome barriers to help people turn their lives around and achieve their goals. We work with people aged 16+ with no upper age limit.

Nobody is turned away and they have projects to cater for a wide range of needs.

JST responds to emerging needs and build projects around them. Our current projects are diverse to suit age groups 16+ and are always tailored with you in mind. We respond to emerging needs and the voices of our communities.
