RE/CREATIONS aimed to bridge the gap between arts and cultural provision for young people identified as ‘repeat offenders’ aged 14-17, through the provision of a longer-term weekly Arts Award embedded programme. Outcomes from this programme were evaluated in a final project report.Find Out More
Our work with youth justice settings
We work with youth justice settings, using arts, culture and heritage as a way to engage young people who have become disengaged with traditional schooling and education.
Using initiatives like Arts Award and Artsmark, we work to help reduce reoffending rates by providing positive, creative outlets for young people to express themselves.
Arts Award helps develop self-discipline and provides a sense of purpose that can often be lacking in the lives of young offenders or those at risk of offending. Its flexible nature makes it suitable to be delivered over either a short or longer period of time, in groups or as a one-to-one interaction with a young person.
Through our Partnership Investment programme, we work with youth justice settings, Local Authorities, and more, to combat the effects of youth crime and offending rates in the South East.
