We currently deliver High Level Mentoring in The London Boroughs of Barking & Dagenham, Havering, Lewisham and Redbridge.
S2L support each YOS with their most complex high-end offenders and habitual knife carriers. To reduce the potential of re-offending, we deliver intensive casework and mentoring, particularly around education, training and employment (ETE).
Our High Level Mentoring Team work with medium to high risk young people referred to our service from; Early Help, Social Services or Youth Offending Services.
All referrals must meet the risk level around youth violence for our intervention. This means that young people we work with have often been involved in violent or serious crime, and may have experienced missing episodes – they too are often victims.
Through wholistic mentoring our aim is to effectively assess young peoples decision making processes and help identify patterns of negative behaviour, in an effort to endorse the ethos of Spark2life and positively impact young people’s lives. In turn these personal changes will contribute to the reduction of serious youth crime.
