Ealing's prevention team offers support for young people who are at risk of becoming involved in criminal or anti-social behaviour.
Parents can also choose to receive support and guidance from the team.
This service may be necessary for young people who:
- get into trouble at school or are excluded - this can lead to involvement in crime
- have difficult relationships within their family
- live in an area where there is a lot of crime
- get involved in petty crime
- live in an area where drugs and alcohol are readily available
- mix with with other young people who cause concern because of their behaviour
The team will work with children and young people who are:
- aged 8-17 years old
- involved in anti-social behaviour and/or at risk of offending
- willing to participate under a voluntary contract
- involved in gang activity
How does it work?
Once a referral is received, an officer will arrange to meet the child or young person at home. They will discuss the type of support and agree a plan.
The plan may include:
- one-to-one key work support
- victim awareness/impact of offending
- family support
- substance misuse work
- sexual health and exploitation work
- consequences of carrying/using weapons
- consequences of anti-social behaviour
- fire safety
- mental health assessment/support
- vehicle crime/safety work
- positive holiday activities
