Key facts project summary
Ordsall & Langworthy Case Study
Matty was referred to our service due to concerns around his involvement in local gangs, anti-social behaviour and his violent nature in school and within the community.
STEER provides one to one mentoring for young people at risk of serious youth violence. The service uses positive activities to steer young people down a legitimate path helping to improve resilience, motivation and reducing risk-taking behaviours.
“The sessions provided Matty with an opportunity to get things off his chest, away from his home environment.”
“Matty is now aware of the impact his actions have on those close to him. He’s even motivated to find a career that he’s passionate about” – STEER Salford Coordinator
Since beginning the STEER mentoring sessions, Matty has not been involved in any major incidents. Matty’s school have also commented on his improvement, stating that he’s on his way to achieving some really good grades!
Matty’s mentoring sessions will continue to ensure that he successfully enrols on to an apprenticeship or college course, and to ensure his positive relationship with his family continues.
