  • Be the change drop the knife workshop

  • £TBCper session
  • An interactive skills led programme which explores, educates and empowers positive decision making to prevent knife crime.

     

    These enjoyable, interactive activities are designed to achieve engagement with the participants and lead on to a group discussion about the issues raised. 

     

    We will focus our attention on identifying solutions that can be used effectively in the real world and cover topics such as resisting peer pressure and negotiating compromising situations.

     

    Be The Change we believe that education about knife crime is an important part of any young people’s support programme, and is one of the key elements in moving towards a situation of zero tolerance towards the carrying of knives.

Suitable for young people aged 11 - 25
  • Gang Culture Workshop

  • £TBCPer session
  • Concern about youth crime is on the increase but remains surrounded by myths.

     

    While gangs may lead young people into dangerous situations and breed community division, distrust and fear, the friendship, support, security and sense of belonging they offer are often overlooked.

     

    This highly practical hands-on workshop is particularly suited to young people and staff who work with them to experience and practise a variety of creative action methods in groupwork to explore these complex issues.

     

    The workshop uses drama & theatre techniques in youth and education work as an active and exciting way of resolving conflict and making theatre around social issues. The workshop also offers effective interventions that work and demonstrates how young people can be engaged in a creative and challenging process that explores the costs, gains and consequences of the choices they make around crime, weapons and gang membership.
