Street Aware is a programme targeted at young people to prevent them from becoming involved in knife or weapons offences. The programme was developed by Anna Power from Nottingham Education Partnership and delivered by Police Community Support Officers (PCSO), who are now seconded to the Nottingham City YOT. PCSOs are also able to deliver the programme as a 1:1 session, if required to do so, based on individual circumstances.

Street Aware is also delivered as a 1:1 session, by the YOT Targeted Youth Support staff, with young people who are referred to Early Intervention Team or to the YOT. It can also be used with young people with learning difficulties.



Implementing the Practice:

  • Staff need to familiarise themselves with the supporting documents as well as the session
  • The programme can either be delivered as a group or 1:1 intervention
