Crime Diversion Program
Crime Diversion and Substance Misuse Programmes – both are 6 week, 12 hours exploring attitudes and beliefs, substance misuse and its impact, choices and consequences, myths around criminal activity, prison life, the law including joint enterprise, and the effect of behaviour on others (victim empathy). These honest and hard-hitting programmes are delivered by our Lead Youth Worker who has had over 40 convictions due to substance misuse but has been in recovery and conviction free for over 14 years. These are delivered in schools, and pupil referral units.

CSCS Card (Construction Skills Certification Scheme)
Entry to Employment – working with referrals from Youth Offending Team and Early Help, NEET (not in employment, education, or training) young people are supported 1-2-1 through Health and Safety Environment (HSE) and Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) education to prepare them for their CSCS Card (Construction Skills Certification Scheme). Once complete, we support them with job searching, interview preparation and purchase for them, Personal Protective Equipment so they can enter the field of construction, often removing them from criminal activity and entering into a positive cycle of change, becoming financially self-sustaining thus removing the need for illegal activity to source an income.
