Tackling issues that affect young people: - drug taking - underage and binge drinking - smoking - solvents - legal highs - sexual health - anti-social behaviour. Long term benefits will include prevention of ill health, addiction, crime, social exclusion, family breakdown, etc. This will reduce cost to other public services.


The intervention will use the best methods for the person and issue. Using one to one, group and family counselling as well as interactive and innovation educational methods to engage young people. A number of weekley sessions would be provided, which is an improvement on current brief intervention initiatives, and results will be measured through questionnaires and potentially research in partnership with Kent University.
