Prison No Way

What is it?

Prison No Way is an interactive, practical and varied programme for young people who are at risk of entering criminality, being involved in it, as well as at risk of youth violence. It is delivered across ten sessions in partnership with Criminal Justice Service agencies.

Across the weeks, we aim to:

  • Teach young people to avoid participation in criminal activity by enabling them to make better/more informed decisions
  • Understanding lifelong consequences of criminal activity to individuals and wider circles
  • Increased awareness of the impact of crime on local communities and the wider society
  • Ensure young people are aware of risks of being involved with County Lines and identify strategies to support themselves in avoiding this

The project looks to educate young people by exploring the realities of crime and offering real practical insight into the consequences and relevant processes.

Our face to face delivery can be tailored to ensure that all elements meet the needs of the group.

Who is eligible?

  • Young people aged 10 – 16 years
  • Willing to take part in group work or 1:1 interventions (face to face and online delivery options)
  • Those identified of being at risk of youth violence and offending behaviour

 

  • We have a free online offer of support for 10-14 year olds. This can be accessed via our online form at the top of the page.
