We promote community safety and social justice to encourage safer neighbourhoods, and work to reduce violence and anti-social behaviour by creating opportunities for young people, older people, women and ex-offenders. We build strong relationships between communities, police and youth offending services in the context of seeking justice and transparency. We are actively supporting ex-offenders in rehabilitation.
• We reach into communities and support ex-offenders, as peer supporters, mentors and train them as advisors. They often provide the listening ear that others cannot, and better understand the conditions under which street violence and drug running takes place, and can be prevented, the support provided and lives can be saved.
• We seek to establish a pathway model that can transform attitudes and accelerate the availability of options in employment, self-employment, co-operatives and social enterprise that are alternatives to reoffending and reduce entry into gangs and anti- social behaviour.
