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.


The common issues we deal with include

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


  • 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


  • 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
