In conjunction with local authorities, areas of need are identified for support through early intervention. Targeted youth diversionary activities take place across estates in Bexley, Greenwich and Kent. In certain areas sessions are co-delivered with detached youth workers, police community support officers and wardens.
Sessions are delivered across a wide variety of activities, including but not limited to, sport, music and performing art. The important factor is young people are involved in positive activity whilst further developing key life skills to build resilience and assist with the transition into adulthood. Staff and volunteers act as mentors for the young people, providing information, advice and guidance. A key element is also to challenge behaviour and develop consequential thinking about the choices they make and the actions they take when confronted with situations.
