OPEN ACCESS YOUTH PROVISION
We offer open access youth provision across the borough of Stockton on Tees in 4 locations. This means that children and young people can simply turn up to our sessions and join in with planned activities for free. Sessions run on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, dependent on funding.
TARGETED YOUTH WORK
We deliver targeted youth work provision, on a detached basis to support vulnerable young people and the reduction of exploitation and violent crime. ‘Detached’ youth work, simply put, is street-based youth work. It is not delivered from a building or centre, but our youth workers can and will signpost to other available services if appropriate. Youth Workers use their skills to engage with children and young people where they are and often have successes that would not occur in a traditional ‘youth club’ setting.
ONE TO ONE WORK
Our experienced youth workers offer one to one support to young people with complex needs or who are at risk of offending behaviour. Staff will establish a bespoke programme or activities to suit each young person and work alongside them to improve outcomes and life chances. This work can vary in its length, dependant on need and risk factors involved.
We recognise that from time to time organisations require additional ‘bespoke’ support. Within our staff team we have extensive knowledge, skills and experience available to provide a wide range of support and services.
These services include:
