Bridging the Gap ~ A social enterprise supporting young people to become independent

Youth Offending

Getting involved in crime or persistently offending is too easy for some young people who do not have the right support. We help young people to find their feet and give them a fresh start in life. If young people who are residing at Bridging the Gap get into trouble with the law we will support them throughout the process: from obtaining a solicitor to attending court on time, assisting in appropriate dress, and acting as an appropriate adult and advising them on how to improve their behaviour for the future, remembering we are not trained professionals in legal matters. If required we will escort the young person to court hearings and proceedings.

We will be working with the young people to deal with the consequences of their crime, both for their own benefit and for the community in which they live.
