Peer Group Conference
A Peer Group Conference meeting has been created to discuss, in a multi-agency environment, vulnerable young people who are coming to the attention of the Police for anti-social behaviour or are at risk of being exploited.
This group is not intended to discuss young people who are already involved in the Criminal Justice system, regularly going missing or have an allocated Social Worker. Instead, this project targets individuals for early intervention with the aim of diverting young people away from potential criminal activity and exploitation.
This project is a Community Safety Partnership initiative and meetings are chaired by a Horsham District Council Community Safety Officer.
Organisations are able to nominate young people to be discussed at the meetings by completing a nomination referral form and returning it to the Community Safety Team at HDC.
