The SCYJ has welcomed four new organisations as members in early 2019: Street Doctors, Safer London Foundation, Centrepoint and the Justice Studio.
StreetDoctors is a charity that changes the lives of high risk young people by giving them the skills they need to deliver life-saving first aid. They use first aid as a tool to educate and empower young people, giving them the confidence and a sense of responsibility for their actions, helping to change their attitude towards violence. More information here.
Safer London is the leading London charity working to prevent and address gang violence, vulnerability and sexual exploitation. They provide needs led intensive support, early intervention and mentoring through our extensive, pan London services. You can find out more here.
Centrepoint is the UK’s leading youth homelessness charity. Together with their partners, they support more than 10,000 homeless young people each year. Centrepoint help vulnerable young people by giving them the practical and emotional support they need to find a job and live independently. More information here.
The Justice Studio provide intelligence services to enable unions of nations, governments, and not-for-profit organisations better promote social justice. Their objective is to champion the rights and voices of their clients’ beneficiaries, including children and young people, those in the criminal justice system and those facing discrimination or inequitable situations. You can find out more here.
The SCYJ and our existing members look forward to collaborating with these organisations to promote more effective responses to children in trouble with the law.
