Hemlington Linx works Middlesbrough-wide delivering open access youth provisions for young people aged 10-19.
Linx provides support on a wide range of topics which include: employment, training and education, alcohol and drug misuse, finance and antisocial behaviour.
During October half term, Linx is opening three of their centres in Hemlington, Grove Hill and Newport to host workshops on anti-social behaviour and for the young people to take part in Halloween-style games and activities.
Linx has requested funding to purchase equipment to use for the activities and decorations for the centres.
The funding would also be used for a trip for 50 young people to attend on Halloween to ‘Fright’ Light Water Valley.
The activities aim to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in communities and neighbourhoods, helping young people to grow, develop and learn, enabling them to make informed positive decisions about their lives.
Supporting this initiative helps to improve dialogue and understanding of communities and supports PCC’s objectives of Working Together to Make Cleveland Safer and Securing the Future of Our Communities.
