The Hub @ South Kirkby Youth Work

Detached/Outreach

Our Team are regularly contacting Young People through Detached Youth Work. Detached Youth Work uses the principles of informal education to engage with young people and identify their needs, interests and concerns allowing us to support them in their personal and social development. Detached Youth Work takes place in settings whereby the Young People will usually be. This can include; parks, cafes, fields and other spaces that Young People have chosen to be.  

By working with local partners, and listening to the concerns of the community members, we can respond and react to potential ASB hotspots and work with the Young People to build effective and meaningful relationships through regular contact, mutual trust, respect and understanding.  

Whilst on detached, we are able to support and challenge young people’s attitudes and actions towards issues such as unemployment, litter, drugs, poverty, racism, health, sexuality, criminality peer, parental and community pressures.  

Our team hit the streets and walk around local parks to work with young people where they are most comfortable – in their own communities. We help young people to access a range of activities and experiences, whilst exploring issues that are important to them.
