Previously, we answered the question what is anti-social behaviour and what can we do to help? A year on we thought we’d put the spotlight on some of the great organisations who are continuing to tackle the problem.
Mentor UK is a CAN Mezzanine Old street customer. Their mission is to promote the health and wellbeing of children and young people in order to prevent alcohol and drug misuse. Mentor UK recently delivered a seminar looking at new psychoactive substances and how schools and practitioners can improve their knowledge of these substances in order to deliver appropriate interventions.

The Archway Project
CAN Invest’s Early Intervention Fund, delivered in partnership with UBS, recently invested in the Archway project to help expand the scale and reach of their services. Archway Project is a youth club and education centre for young people providing training and support that is accessible to all. They set up in 1982 to enrich the lives of young people through a range of educational workshops and recreational activities. They offer a unique learning experience, with a proven track record for minimising social exclusion, empowering at risk young people, providing meaningful qualifications and reducing crime rates. Find out more about their work.
The Foyer Federation moved into CAN³ earlier this year; they are a not-for-profit organisation that helps to transform the circumstances of young people who have faced barriers in their lives. Read more about the Foyer Federation’s move into CAN³. The Foyer Federation has recently launched their campaign to raise £5,000 in seven days (28th November #GivingTuesday – 5th December) to support their Talent Bond programme. Talent Bonds are small investments in young people’s talent, potential and aspiration for the future. Talent Bonds can be used to pay for clothes for a new job, specialist course fees, or equipment needed to develop a skill or invest in a passion.
