Covid 19 Response

We are delivering, creative services and diversifying our engagement with young people. 
We will be:  

  • Receiving Referrals for young people who are vulnerable to exploitation, struggling with lockdown and the transition back into the community

  • Providing support and advice to parents who are concerned about their young people going back into/ or getting into crime, drugs and violence 

  • Providing, consultation, information, education and awareness to professionals, communities, faith groups, youth clubs and parents

  • Developing creative and virtual workshops in partnership with the Safer Communities Alliance


We work on a one-to-one basis and in small groups, large group PSHE lessons/Assemblies and street-based interventions.
