WORKSHOPS to educate young people about the risks of anti-social behaviour will be held across Leeds this summer.
There will be six sessions focusing on Knife crime and keeping safe; drug and alcohol awareness; fire safety and hoax calls; anti-social behaviour; vehicle related anti social behaviour; community safety, CCTV.
Councillor Peter Gruen, executive board member for community safety, said, “By reaching out to young people who have either been involved in anti-social behaviour, or who are at risk of being involved, we can help tackle the issue at the earliest possible stage.
The workshops are designed to educate young people about the negative implications of anti-social behaviour and the impact it has on their lives and the lives of others.”
The six sessions will target people who are a part of Leeds City Council’s Signpost project. Signpost is a service that works with families who have high support needs.
Those who attend the workshops will receive an ASDAN qualification to help boost their career credentials further.
The workshops have been developed Safer Leeds- a partnership between Leeds City Council and West Yorkshire Police.
