Sean Duffy says we need to focus on the reasons for crime itself, not only the outcome of crime.
No Limits from the Wise Group is an early intervention programme to divert young people aged 11-14 from offending or criminal activity.
Activities and mentoring are delivered by mentors with personal experience of the challenges facing young people. No Limits was co-designed with schools, young people and community police officers. Sessions take place in a relaxed, interactive way, mixing games and teamwork with discussion and education on the root causes of offending behaviour, including drugs, alcohol, knives, peer pressure, relationships and mental health.
