The Challenge We have a duty to provide interventions which enable young people to address issues arising out of their experiences of risk and abuse. We also have a duty to provide interventions designed to assist young people to manage and reduce the likelihood and/or continuation of risk and abuse.
The LINX Programme The theme underpinning the programme is the link between young people’s experiences, how they feel as a result of this and the subsequent impact on their offending behaviour
Walk The Line. Time for some volunteers…
Walk The Line- Debrief. What does a young person learn from this exercise? As professionals what can we also learn from this exercise?
