Recipient Org: Description StreetSpace has established itself as a leading agency working with those with the highest need, engaging with young people who would not normally access youth work support or traditional centre-based provision. We are the only organization in the region that engages in weekly detached youth work sessions and in recent months, contact with young people has increased, as new young people emerge onto the streets. Due to our innovative approach of going out onto the streets, we are able to consult with young people on a weekly basis regarding their needs and priorities. Since our set up in 2006 the youth work we engage in has diversified to include a homework club, a Friday night youth club, consultation meetings with the community, young leaders training (‘Zine), individual and group mentoring and community events. We also facilitate projects that are a direct result of young people having ideas they would like to see developed, but needing outside assistance to make these a reality, helping to improve their lives. We believe we can address the inequality of opportunity young people face, breaking negative cycles by utilising existing relationships and creatively drawing in the wider community. In the last year we have seen: • 25 young people attend an afterschool homework club • 40 young people attend a Friday night youth club • An average of 15 young people came to consultation meetings with the local community • 3 young people participated in ‘Zine our young leaders training. • 15 young people attended 1 to 1 mentoring sessions facilitated by StreetSpace. • 25 young people took part in group work, with young people discussing topics centred on relationships and drug misuse. • 8 young people volunteered for StreetSpace The following are quotes from young people expressing some of the ways StreetSpace has helped them in the past year: “Having to someone to talk to is a good thing, it really helps when you come to appointments with me.” “StreetSpace has given us stuff to do and has helped us increase our sociability and community involvement” “I definitely want to continue meeting fortnightly at least, this is the one place I can be myself, it really helps to talk things through.” “If I hadn’t met StreetSpace, I don’t know where I would be now.” We have been intentional in our engagement with these young people, establishing successful patterns of work that starts with building good relationships.
