In late 2018, PLIAS Resettlement was awarded a grant from the Young Londoners Fund to support its Youth Works project, a programme which aims to support BAME young people, aged 16-21 in Brent and Harrow who either have a criminal record or are at risk of offending in order to support their resettlement and reduce the risks associated with reoffending.
This innovative project will increase the engagement of BAME young people by establishing multiple points of entry for the timely provision of a case work and mentoring model.
The project provides wraparound support via personalised casework and dedicated mentor engagement to help participants move into education, training and employment and signpost/refer them to appropriate community services and specialist agencies.
By investing in projects, and young people, that are dedicated to giving young Londoners an opportunity to get involved in positive activities, we can work to help every child and teenager at risk off the streets, and away from the dangers of crime.”
Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London.
This project is funded by the Mayor’s Young Londoners Fund.
