The Wise Up project in Hull
The Humberside Police Early Intervention Team has been running a six week pilot programme at Kingston Youth Centre in Hull called Wise Up. The aim of the programme is to increase the resilience of young people through positive activities and engagement.
The Tribune Trust are pleased to be able to support The Early Intervention Team to roll out the Wise Up programme and run six week sessions for groups of up to ten young people, aged 12-18 years, for the next twelve to eighteen months.
The aim is to promote alternative pathways for young people by increasing their resilience and encouraging aspirations. The programme also aims to inspire the young people involved to become all they can be and fulfil their potential.
Topics covered during the programme will include Respect, Consequences of Crime, First Aid and Mental Health awareness, Drug and Alcohol awareness, Sexual Health and healthy relationships, Cyber Safety, Aspirations and Future plans.
The intention of the aspirations session is to encourage the young people to engage with further projects such as the Police Cadets, Prince's Trust, Volunteen, Kingston Youth Centre, Humberside Fire and Rescue and Tigers Trust.
There will also be a youth engagement event to be held at Kingston Youth Centre. This will be a multi-agency event encouraging young people to participate in events and activities offered in the Myton area. Local businesses and partner agencies will be invited to participate and will be involved in supporting the event.
