NINE young people volunteered to attend a 12-week programme aimed at engaging them in community activities aimed at team building and other social skills.

The sessions were held each Thursday from 3.30pm to 6.30pm and, in addition, they had to complete a number of tasks in their own time outside of the group programme.

Councillor Sue Murphy, cabinet member for Family Intervention and Safer Communities said: “They have all shown commitment and worked hard towards achieving their UK Youth Bronze Award.

“The main focus of programme has been raising awareness of Crime Prevention, which included the cost and consequences of crime, victim impact and empathy and what is anti social behaviour.”
