Service Six are proud to be one of the organisations helping to deliver a new and innovative service called Youth Court Solutions, Northamptonshire.
The 12 months pilot is being launched in Spring 2021 and will be held fortnightly in Wellingborough Magistrate’s Court. Initial activities will be to engage defendants, victims, witnesses, family and friends and provide needs led information, solution focused support and referrals into a wide range of existing community-based charities and projects.
A Service Six Youth Specialist based in the Magistrate’s Court will be able to engage with beneficiaries in order to provide information about available support and sign post people to services provided by Service Six and external organisations. The Service Six Youth Specialist will also be able to assist with any emergency and immediate wellbeing needs and will offer follow-up check-ins after two and four weeks and six months.
Other organisations involved in delivering the project include The Crysalys Foundation, who will be managing the project, and Northamptonshire Youth Offending Service who will provide information, advice and support in a range of areas including; housing, law and benefits; and health information provided by CAMHS employed personnel; education to help facilitate beneficiaries back into school; and substance misuse information.
