Nottingham City Detached

The Nottingham City Detached project has been running for over four years now, and was introduced to provide support, and pro-active interventions to young people who are congregating on the city’s streets, but who are not accessing the provision within local youth clubs, and other services for young people. Our aim is to reduce antisocial behaviour perpetrated by young people, to minimise young people who are outside of mainstream services, and to provide detached support to some of the more difficult to engage young people.

Project duration: 4 Years

Funding: Nottingham City Council VSIP

Area of work: The Meadows, Lenton, Leen Valley, Bilborough

Age group: 11- 19 years old

Type of work: Detached youth work, and project based youth work

  • To support young people to achieve positive personal progressions
  • To support young people to achieve accredited learning outcomes
