What do our Youth Intervention team do?
Redthread empowers young people to thrive as they navigate the challenging transition to adulthood by integrating trauma-informed youth work into the health sector. Whether a young person has been the victim of a stabbing, is seeking support for anxiety, has suffered a sexual assault, or wants to find a new home beyond the reach of a gang, we support them to overcome the challenges they face through our dynamic youth work programmes.
Every year thousands of young people find themselves in hospital A&E departments as the victim of serious youth violence. Redthread’s Youth Violence Intervention Programme embeds youth workers in hospitals to intervene with these young people. The teams meet the young patients as soon as they can: in the A&E waiting room, on the ward, or even in the resuscitation bay. We believe that this moment of intense crisis, when the young person is nursing a serious injury in the daunting environment of a busy hospital, often alone, can be a catalyst for pursuing positive change – a ‘teachable moment’.
Our teams build rapport with the young people, mentor and advise them, and support them to make long-term positive plans to break away from cycles of violence and offending. Problems include exclusion from education, employment or training, a lack of stability in housing, mental health concerns, unstable relationships and reprimands due to criminal activity. Redthread capitalise on our partnerships to ensure long-term work and change is possible for each young person. The teams make well-judged referrals on their behalf and accompany them to initial meetings to ensure transition is smooth. This work disrupts the cycle that can too easily lead to devastated communities and an exhausted healthcare and justice system.
