PL Targeted (Onside Mentoring Project) works in partnership with Sheffield Youth Justice and other referral agencies, to identify and mentor young people who are at risk of becoming perpetrators or victims of youth violence
Onside aims to provide an intensive mentoring provision focussing on increasing protective factors and decreasing risk factors for young people aged 8 – 18.
Young people who may be at risk of violence, criminality and exploitation are provided with a positive mentor who aims to guide them to make better decisions and support their ability to regulate their emotions. This is achieved through physical activities and informal educational workshops on topics such as conflict resolution, anger management, contributing to the community, setting goals, realising potential, time management etc.
