This blog is one of a number of stories we will be posting throughout Youth Work Week 2018
Continuing our series on blogs for Youth Work Week (June 23-30), today we are focusing on the Wrexham Youth Justice Service. Like the other services we have covered, they will be in Tŷ Pawb on Saturday June 30.
So who are they and what do they do? Stick around to find out!
Wrexham Youth Justice Service provide advice and support to young people, parents and communities who identify issues that cause concern.
The service provides structured interventions aimed at prevention, rehabilitation and the causes of crime in Wrexham to reduce the impact fear and volume of crime.
The focus is on children and young people aged 10-17 in order to prevent offending and re-offending.
Their vision is beautifully summarised by striving for ‘a Wrexham which is safe and crime free for all, where young people are valued citizens within the community.’
So who are the people behind this excellent work?
The Prevention Team
The Prevention Team is a diverse multi-skilled group of professionals who are passionate about helping young people to make positive choices. These choices can offer them alternatives to their current behaviours and help them keep out of trouble.
Helping to achieve this…
Interventions can include issue based workshops, mentoring and diversionary activities, which are underpinned by youth work values and The United Nations Convention on the rights of the child.
For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will also be a number of other services promoting their work and plenty of fun and informal activities to get involved with.
One of these events is an open mic session starting at 1pm and later at 3pm you are in for a treat as Luke Gallagher will be performing live music.GET UPDATES FROM TŶ PAWB
