Targeted Youth Provision

Last Modified October 15, 2014

Targeted Provision



We provide year round, targeted youth provision for ages nine to 19 focused on improving their chances of success and raising aspirations.

We pride ourselves on being responsive to youth issues and always endeavor to provide support in some capacity.

We work in partnership with various organisations to develop and deliver projects that young people will enjoy and choose to commit to; where they can have fun, social interaction and develop a range of life skills. We are currently supporting the following:

A mentoring project has been set up in North Bushey in response to concerns raised by local residents about young people behaving anti-socially. It has the following aims and anticipated outcomes:


  •  To engage with young people responsible for perceived anti-social behaviour within the targeted areas.
  •  To support the young people in identifying their needs; to build their emotional resilience, leadership skills and personal development and to reduce their incidences of anti-social behaviour.



  •  The reduction of anti-social behaviour amongst a target group of young people.
  •  Increased skill base; confidence and agency and improved leadership skills shown by the young people.
  •  Increased positive relationships between young people and the local community.
  •  Increase positive perceptions of young people from key stakeholders and the local community.
