Concept

We aimed to:

Publicity

Prior to release each Detained Young Person will receive a leaflet containing information on Kent Libraries services that will be relevant to them in the Swale district. This leaflet was designed by consulting with Young Offenders on what Library resources they would be interested in.

Accessing Library Resources

Each Young Offender will receive information on library provision through a one to one session delivered by a Youth Services Mentor at a Swale Library.

Key audiences

Young Offenders

Purpose

To use Library resources to support and encourage young offenders learning opportunities and achievements.

The Future

We hope if the pilot is successful to roll this out countywide.

Who runs this project?

Youth Offending Service Mentors, Swale Library Staff and Volunteers

Partners

Kent Youth Offending Service and Kent County Youth Crime Prevention.
