Targeted youth work
AIR3 can also provide targeted detached youth work, centre based youth work, residential work, street gang work, community cohesion projects, intergenerational work and guidance on facilities.
Whatever your requirement regarding young people between 10-25 years, we will design you a fit for purpose solution that involves placing the young people at the centre of the intervention with their consent.
‘I was really pleased with the competitions, they were the highlight of the day. Some of the young people were on site at 9:30am in anticipation. The competitions were well run, with pace, and provided stimulating entertainment for adults and young people’.
Graham Morrow – Resident Involvement Manager, AmicusHorizon – Sussex Region
