Supporting young people
What Is Detached Youth Work?
Every week, our team hit the pavements of North Liverpool to meet and support young people. We understand it’s important to be in a setting where they are comfortable. This is delivered via our Detached Youth Work Service.
It could be that the young people they encounter need some signposting. Alternatively, they could also benefit from more formal support from the team at Positive Futures. Regardless of background, what football team they support or personal circumstances, our team of Youth Development Workers are ready to help.
Our Detached Youth Work covers several wards surrounding our head office on Tetlow Way. Quite often, the young people we meet then go on to access one (or more) of our services. That may be our Targeted Support or Weekly Sessions.
Last year alone, the team spent 2,611 hours on detached youth work, out on the streets, where young people are.
