Aims:

  • Support young people to be aware of the impact of knife/weapons
  • Support young people to not become involved in knife/weapons awareness in the first instance through increasing knowledge

 

 

Description:
Nottingham City YOT use Fearless resource with young people that are identified by local schools at risk of offending and or anti-social behaviour. The session includes: weapons, vandalism, graffiti, arson, vehicle crime, robbery and theft, burglary, and assault. 

Prior to the Fearless session, young people are expected to participate and complete a 1 hour pre-session which focuses on communication and conflict. This intervention is currently being piloted with young people at Nottingham City YOT (please see attached below).

 

 

Implementing the practice:

  • Nottingham City YOT staff have completed training by Fearless to run the programme
  • Sessions are run in school in small groups of 6 with young people identified by the schools as being at risk of offending (although session can also be completed on a 1:1)
  • The communication and conflict session is completed with all young people due to attend the Fearless session as a supporting tool to ensure engagement in the main session
