Britain has been transformed socially and economically, over the last 25 years by two principle influences: technological development, and the establishment of the European Union, with its ensuing legislations and directives. Together these have had an enormous impact on government, economics, community and even lifestyle.
However, personal, social and economic development has come at a price, the widening ‘gulf’ between those who have the opportunities to fulfil their desires, aspirations, and those who are not so fortunate; i.e. the disadvantaged/socially excluded young people. They too want – and deserve – to have opportunities that they can identify and develop, ‘whatever the consequences’.
is a learning and development center and a set of residential hostels, which is broken down into two facets; these are educational and rehabilitation for the purpose of reintegrating socially excluded young adults back into their communities and social environment.
YRDCs was created to provide an alternative approach to helping socially challenged young people (aged 16-21, furthering to a 21-25 outreach service) who have abandoned main-stream education, found themselves in vulnerable situations, homeless, and/or on the wrong side of the legal system.
YRDCs is not about waving a magic wand – it is about giving young people the tools they need to claim back their lives within their communities for the decent law abiding majority.
It currently costs the public £176,000 to contain a young person in a secure unit for 1 year; this constitutes as a huge sum of wasted spending, considering that 32% of young offenders re-offend within the first year after their release. Clearly this demonstrates a need to revaluate carefully on how best to combat these patterns.
