Our projects

Streetz plus detached

Streetz plus detached project will consist of a street-based team of experienced and trained youth workers in partnership with Cleveland Police Neighbourhood Policing Teams to work for six months in an identified area of Redcar and Cleveland.

The project will deliver a range of early intervention, diversionary, educational and positive activities centred around assertive, street-based youth work, which will engage with young people aged 8-18 years who are at risk of exploitation, and/or of becoming involved in antisocial or criminal behaviour, in particular serious youth violence.

The key outcomes are:

  • Reduction in youth antisocial behaviour
  • Reduction in youth violence
  • Improved youth mental health through positive activity
  • Increased engagement of young people in positive activity
  • Raise aspirations of young people in the areas identified
  • Increased community confidence
  • Increased referrals of young people to support services
  • Increased feelings of safety in young people
