  • They are also a partner for me to tackle the scourge of knife crime in the Borough, working with young people of all ages to provide resilience against the criminal groomers and exploiters. I would have found the last two years, with too many young deaths, so much more difficult without them.

  • The opportunities AAA offer to those with multiple needs, whether that is activity days, trips away or learning about their communities, are absolutely pivotal in transforming their lives for the better, boosting their confidence and their abilities.

Situation

The rapidly reducing age that children and especially those who are already vulnerable and at risk due to their personal and family circumstances, are being sought out to be groomed and lured into gang activity, drug carrying, criminality and ASB by gang members - destroying their childhood and pushing them into a downward spiral of negativity, unfulfilled potential and some, to a point of no return.

Solution

By facilitating a structured early intervention programme reaching out to the most vulnerable children where they are - on the street; engaging them in activities that enable them to build self worth and recognise and understand their difficulties and having done so, support them to overcome all their barriers simultaneously to achieve positive progress away from vulnerability and onto supported pathways forward to achieving their full potential.
