As the Army say, you can’t beat boots on the ground, and so it is with detached youth work. Effective time spent on the streets having dialogue and listening to young peoples’ needs is the reason for the success of the project. The team’s 49 years experience between them allows for a well delivered and high quality service over a seven year period in the most deprived area of North Tyneside. The economic downturn has increased the need for our service, with a massive increase in young people losing their jobs, suffering and causing increased poverty. Our preventative education continues to help reduce anti-social behaviour, whilst working with young people on a voluntary basis to develop young person-led ideas and projects.
