Youth Intervention Programmes
Transforming Futures, Nurturing Change

London Tigers is committed to making a real difference in the lives of young individuals who may be facing identity crises, or on the verge of being pulled into the dangerous life of knife crimes, gang-related activities, violence, and antisocial behaviours. We understand the urgency of this issue and have designed our Youth Intervention Programmes to provide a lifeline for these young souls.

Seizing the Teachable Moment:

Our programmes recognise the pivotal ‘teachable moment’ that occurs when young people who’ve been victims of violence may be most open to guidance and change. By embedding dedicated teams of youth workers within the communities where they’re most needed, we aim to engage young people aged between 7 and 25 during these critical times.

Bespoke Support and Holistic Wellbeing:

London Tigers’ youth workers build trust and rapport with young individuals, helping them through medical treatment and providing the support they need. Our interventions are tailored to each individual’s unique needs and can include safety planning, risk assessments, goal-setting, and support to (re-)engage with education, training, and employment.

Coordinated Networks, Real Results:

Our focus isn’t on duplicating work or complicating situations for these young individuals, many of whom are already in contact with multiple agencies. Instead, we prioritise building robust networks and connecting agencies and professionals. We provide ‘relational referrals’, guiding young people through each step of the referral process. Our goal is to ensure that every young person feels confident in pursuing a positive change in their life, whether that be in housing, employment, education, or exiting negative peer groups.

Transformation through Empowerment:

Our collaborative, asset-based approach promotes effective relationships with statutory services and proactive help-seeking behaviour. Through one-to-one casework with trusted youth workers, we build self-esteem and personal resilience in these young individuals, enabling them to consider aspirational options they may never have thought accessible before. We empower them to turn away from violence and make positive choices for their own futures, allowing them to thrive, not just survive.

Measurable Impact:

We take pride in the transformative results of our interventions. Over the years, we’ve seen that 80% of young people we’ve worked with felt safer in their own communities than before. Young individuals involved in violence before their journey with us, significantly reduced their involvement crime and anti-social behaviour after starting engagement with us. Re-attendance at hospitals for violent injuries decreased, and a significant portion of young people engaged in education, training, or employment after our intervention.

By focusing on building trust, establishing meaningful connections, and providing holistic support, our Youth Intervention Programmes have been instrumental in guiding these young individuals towards brighter, more positive futures. We offer them a chance to thrive, supporting them in their journey towards a life free from violence and filled with opportunities. Join us in making this transformation possible.
