Divert

Description:

Divert caters for 13-16 year olds who are in, or at risk of being involved in, the Criminal Justice System across West Mercia. It is a diversionary service aimed at young people who are displaying anti-social behaviour, have started to disengage or who are feeling lost and alone. It is particularly important to prevent minor issues becoming major issues further down the line.

Divert uses skilled YSS service coordinators and volunteer mentors to  provide one to one support to young people who are referred to the service, helping them to access community based activities and other appropriate services.

Generally a young person is with Divert for approximately 12 weeks.
