About Us

Underpinning Ethos

We believe that whilst young people engaging in anti-social behaviour must be held responsible for their actions, individual circumstances must also be taken into account. Behaviour cannot be dealt with in isolation from social exclusion.

Issues:

The common issues we deal with include

  • Anti-social behaviour
  • Housing issues
  • Homelessness
  • Health and well being
 
 

Objectives:

  • To identify the support and intervention needs of families where one or more members are engaged in anti-social and/or offending behaviour
  • To identify gaps in existing support services and the barriers in accessing these services
  • To develop effective partnerships with services in collaboration with families we support
  • To provide information and advocate on behalf of the community
  • To raise the profile of BSII and engage with families in the community
  • To encourage individuals/families to participate in
    educational, social and cultural activities that will support their own development

Aims:

  • To assist young people in refraining from anti-social behaviour and to encourage them into activities that will enrich their lives and the lives of their community
  • To provide support to families to develop their coping strategies in dealing with anti-social behaviour
  • We are a first point of contact for dis-empowered families and individuals and are a crisis intervention service
  • We aim to raise social awareness with clients and service providers
  • To enable our clients to identify their supports/intervention needs
  • To develop a model of effective partnership with other service providers
