CRJI were delighted to organise a multi-agency event for young people in Tullygally Youth centre alongside our local PCSP. It was wonderful to see TEO attend the event alongside the partners of the forum who worked together to make this event the success it was. Thank you to Paddy from EA who hosted the event in the Youth Centre, PCSP for the ‘Recruited ‘and ‘Ending the Harm’ videos, Inspector Mark Conway PSNI and Caroline Dawson Youth Justice Agency who sat on the Panel alongside CRJI for the Question and Answer session. The event was well attended with 30 very attentive young people. Discussions included ‘age of responsibility’, restorative practise and how it works, knowing when to say no, setting boundaries, consequences of getting involved in ASB, drug dealing or with criminal armed gangs.
Keeping our young safe is about giving them information on which to base informed choices and taking decisions on what's right for them. The is part of the Community Safety Engagement Forums commitment to increase learning opportunities that can assist your way of life, empowerment is key to this.
