Police and Crime Commissioner Project
Our Aspire Project in Blaenau Gwent and our Taking Care Project in Cardiff provides support to care experienced young people to access positive activities and break down barriers to engagement, whilst providing educational workshops on serious crime, its effects on young people and their community.
Both projects provide access to a young person’s advisory forum for care experienced young people in order for young people to share their views with the police and court systems. We want to promote the voice of care experienced young people to influence change in services to reduce the criminalisation of young people in care.
