When young people are confronted with poverty, crime, violence, neglect or abuse they can exhibit anti-social behaviour. This behaviour may inhibit their psychological, educational and professional development. It can also lead to them becoming detached from formal social systems and ultimately may find themselves in conflict with the law.
We are committed to:
3.1. Providing programmes and activities at our community centres;
3.2. Working with the gang violence reduction team;
3.3. Ensuring that families of at-risk young people are referred to the appropriate agencies for support services;
3.4. Mentoring and supporting at-risk youth to encourage them away from anti-social behaviour and crime.
3.5. Supporting the organisations that assist youth in overcoming their involvement in anti-social behaviour.
