Detached youth work
The Detached Youth Work team work with hard to reach and challenging young people
in non-structured community settings to help reduce anti-social behaviour. Working
with young people in all weather conditions, at unsocial times and in areas and
circumstances that may seem dangerous to some people is key to positive outcomes
for both young people and local communities.
The team want to make the community a better place for young people to live in by
helping them contribute to their community and providing, where they can, new facilities
to promote positive opportunities.
Young people aged between 12 and 22 years old can drop-in to the team's X-Pod to
take part in activities and to get advice. The X-Pod is a converted steel shipping
container that is open at peak anti-social times to provide young people with multi-media
experiences, games and workshops on issues affecting them.
