Streetwork is a not-for-profit, community based organisation that focuses on prevention and early intervention strategies for 'at risk' youth. Youth Workers and trained volunteer mentor help troubled young people aged between 11-18 affected by crime, mental health issues, violence, destructive relationships, rejections and isolation, homelessness, alcohol and substance abuse and those disengaged from school or education and with poor employment opportunities to turn their lives around. This is achieved by redirecting young people through positive role modelling, mentoring and practical support towards more positive and fulfilling choices of their lives.
