The rise of Crime, Gang culture and knife crime requires more early intervention and education and to tackle these issues at the root.   We educate those most at risk through conflict resolution and help them to protect themselves from being exploited or caught up in bullying/peer pressure/ crime/grooming/Money laundering  – either as victim or perpetrator.   

Our engaging workshops help and support parents, young people and others de- glamourise this lifestyle.

We highlight the reasons people get involved in crime, gang culture , carry knives  and the consequences of doing so and teach conflict resolution to help young people  make better choices. 

Using a multi agency assertive approach, with doctors, Parents, ex offenders/gang members and the police we aim to develop VIP  a (Violence intervention programme) addressing key root issues.    To enhance empathy and reach the most vulnerable, BAME  and disadvantaged young people in our community

Behaviour Management

Methods

Using cognitive behavioural therapy, solution focussed tools and motivational interviewing. Our interventions are creative, engaging and innovative: involving young people getting in touch with their own experiences by using our own (including role play) and applying well thought out icebreakers and energisers

We deliver  PSHE , large groups, small tailor made groups, girls projects, alternative to exclusion programmes, alternative curriculum schools and any other youth groups to equip and empower young people to cope with problems and normal daily living.

“Dealing with root issues” 

Generational patterns, Anger management, dealing with emotions, cultural awareness, bullying, domestic violence , confidence and self esteem

 

Intensive mentoring  helps young people manage school life for many different reasons, incorporating some teaching of functional skills. We get alongside young people through a range of sporting activities and other hobbies / interests


We support some young people in prison and out of prison for a year to help them settle back in the community

We run training & Consultancy  for professionals, providing advice and information on addressing the needs of young people;

We give support and provide education to parents and carers concerned about their young people being involved in crimes, gangs and substance misuse;

We coach during training and employment – we provide a service that supports young people who want to divert from drugs, alcohol and criminal behaviour whilst they are looking for employment or training or are in training and education. This has proved to be very successful in helping young people to achieve their goals.
