We use centre based, detached, sports sessions as well as specialised programmes and interventions to work with young people and their families.  We have over 10 years’ experience of working with hard to reach and marginalised young people in some of the most deprived wards in the UK. Our experience with our local mainstream youth population’s, NEETS young people, young offenders or those on the periphery of youth crime has shaped our delivery and the way we offer services to young people.  In order to maximise buy in from young people and offer the best chances of positive outcomes we always try to ensure a bespoke package of delivery for the needs of the young people we are working with. Youth Connect works primarily in central and South Walsall delivering multiple weekly sessions. All of our sessions are of no cost to young people. Working with the police, local authority, community partners and education providers we target hot spot areas and co-develop interventions with young people and partners. We work with a very diverse youth population and understand that whilst local authority youth work has greatly diminished, their is still a vital need for open access youth work. Young people need increasing support in Walsall as youth unemployment is increasing, anti social behaviour and youth crime is rising , young people need a more holistic support offer to enrich their lives. Our projects are mainly aimed at working with young people between the ages of 8 to 19 (up to 23 in cases of LDD). We offer and aim to target all young people regardless of the race, religion, sexual orientation or background and work with young people for young people to ensure that their voices are enshrined in the projects we deliver.
