From the 5/9/16 – 18/9/16 our detached team carried out a mapping exercise across North Belfast. We interacted with 613 young people from all different areas. We have identified particular hotspots that we will be targeting throughout the year ahead.
Some issues that young people raised and that we had observed –
- Park Large gatherings at the weekend
- Suicide / Mental Health
- Social Media
- Arranged fights
- Personal Safety
Young people were interested to get involved in groups, street games and meet new people.
This week, YWIC year 1 has began. 55 young people are participating in the year 1 programme. Year 2 have meet and they are working towards their placements in the youth work field. They will complete 3 placements, Detached/Centre based and Group work.
Over the summer volunteers received Part time hours which are still continuing. Great to see the progress of young people through YWIC and moving into employment.
