New Leaf is a new project within our existing BDP Youth Team and is aimed at targeting young people aged 11-19 years-old who are adversely affected by cannabis.
This project offers to see young people for up to 6 months. Through 1-to-1 support and group work, we aim to work flexibly alongside the needs of different young people.
We hope to help young people by reducing dependency through offering alternative ways of thinking, building positive peer relationships and building motivation for diversionary activities. This project offers support for young people using cannabis who are most at risk from Child Criminal Exploitation, Child Sexual Exploitation, Anti-Social Behaviour and Serious Youth Violence, including knife crime.
