Barking and Dagenham High Level Mentoring
In Barking and Dagenham we are currently working on the high level mentoring project. This consists of our team working with medium to high risk young people who are referred to our service from either YOS, Early Help or social services how meet our threshold for gang intervention work. This could mean the young people we work with have either been involved in a gang or some level of serious crime around gang culture, missing episodes, money unaccounted for etc. Our goal is to help disengaged young people.
The effective holistic mentoring we offer not only looks at a young persons decision making but also areas of there life that may go unseen or unnoticed. We provide them with ETE opportunities helping reengage them with a positive lifestyle and de-glamourising gang culture throughout the process. We are based in Barking and Dagenham full time.
