STREET Project

The STREET project is a befriending service held at the One77 facility on York Road 6 evenings per week. It is a safe and social environment for individuals often with special needs and requirements to interact and socialise. 

Mondays & Thursdays from 6.30pm - 8.00pm - STREET Seniors (Ages 11+)

Tuesdays from 5.30pm - 7.00pm STREET Juniors (Ages 10 and below)

We aim to give young people the essential support and encouragement to help them overcome issues with social skills, self esteem and emotional trauma. Everyone at STREET is understanding and supportive of each other's situation. 

With the help of our highly skilled support workers and volunteers we try to build on friendship, social skills and confidence. We do this by encouraging young people to participate in numerous fun activities including; playing on the Nintendo Wii, cooking, computing and watching DVD's amongst other activities. In an effort to restore their confidence and guide them on to the right path.

If you would like a child / young person to attend this project, simply contact our Section Head for Children and Young People on 01429 867016 or email: [email protected]

Our vision is to make a real difference for prisoners, and their families and friends, in the North East. 

We aim to support prisoners and ex-prisoners, their families and friends; to reduce the impact and stigma of imprisonment on their lives and contribute to the positive rehabilitation of offenders.

We support and assist prisoners, families and friends of prisoners in their visits to prison and in their life outside of prison. 

We try to ensure that children visiting relatives in prison will feel welcome and find the experience as pleasant as possible.

We aim to relieve hardship due to the poverty of some offenders and their families. 

We support the education and training of offenders, and other processes which may assist their rehabilitation. 

We raise public awareness through the collection and publication of information relating to criminal justice matters and to the prevention of crime.
