Detached Street Work

Detached Street Work

Our Detached Projects are a positive force on the streets of Waltham Forest and Barking & Dagenham.

Young people/adults have the opportunity to interact with Spark2Life workers on the streets and find an exit strategy from the criminal lifestyles that they may be involved in; Detached Workers accept self-referrals from young people and young adults who desire further support from Spark2Life. 

Our presence on the streets of these boroughs is also welcomed by the wider community.


“I have oversight of all our community safety initiatives in the borough… Spark2Life are a professional culturally competent project with a great track record.”

Daniel Phelps, Waltham Forest Director of Wellbeing & Independence
