TPS Objectives

The plan of Taking Positive Steps is to engage young people who are in the criminal justice system, as early as possible through personal, social and educational opportunities. We will encourage and support achievement and aspirations amongst young people through the accreditation and validation of learning, enriched positive self-esteem and self-confidence.

All young people in receipt of our services will be encouraged to lead healthy and beneficial lifestyles, and to abstain from substance misuse, crime and anti-social behaviour.

We will deliver workshop programmes that promote community cohesion and cultural diversity.

Notwithstanding this, Taking Positive Steps is committed to treating every young person as an individual and not a statistic, thus promoting successful outcomes for all the young people engaged by our service.
