Young People's Service - Breaking The Cycle Team
Our team of BTC Youth Support Caseworkers aim to reduce the number of young people going into the Youth Justice System or other statutory services. They do this by providing additional help and tailored interventions at the earliest opportunity to vulnerable families displaying complex needs and young people aged 5 to 19 years old (up to 25 for SEND).
This includes those displaying harmful behaviour, offending behaviour, being at risk of engaging in youth violence, criminal activity, ASB/ involved in substance misuse or coming to the attention of police/or becoming a teenage parent / young carer/ at risk of being excluded from school or are NEET.
The team takes a partnership approach to offering preventative interventions through
• 1:1 support
• building relationships
• delivering group work programmes and activities that encourages youth voice and influence,
• maximises engagement
• participation and learning to support reducing risks and
• making informed choices to improve and maintain
o positive pathways
o achieving positive outcomes in their personal, social and emotional development, effecting positive change.
121 case work support to young people and their families and supporting them to reduce harmful and risky behaviour for better life outcomes and to engage in local positive activities.
We take a whole family approach. While working with the named child in the family, if other family members require support and guidance, the case worker will provide this support and sign post these family members to appropriate services with their consent.
