Early intervention and prevention

Who is it for?

The programme is for children and young people ready to engage with intensive, tailored support.

What does is involve?

Timely interventions at a “teachable moment” are delivered by two dedicated St Giles Early Intervention and Prevention Workers across Cardiff and Swansea when a young person is most likely to engage with intensive, tailored support.

There are also opportunities to support families of young people who have been identified at risk of being drawn into crime where appropriate.

The nature of interventions vary according to the identified needs of the client. Interventions can be activity based, support to attend appointments, and focused one to one work which encourages young people to consider choices and consequences, and make positive changes.
