Cricklewood Homeless Concern - Youth Engagement Scheme (YES)

The YES project was set up by young homeless people in 2008 in response to local resident concerns about a group of youths engaged in anti-social street based activities.  

The project is unique because it is managed by the young people themselves.  These young people have formed a steering group to develop projects in the community that tackle exclusion and divert other young people away from homelessness and anti-social street based activities. 

Examples of YES activities include summer football and boxercise sessions, participation in residents associations and ward panels, and training sessions for new police recruits.
