CLIP – Croydon Local Intervention Programme
Connecting young people with their communities
CLIP offers support & guidance for 8-16 year olds living and/or educated in Croydon. The programme is designed to support young people who are showing early signs of criminality, anti-social behaviour or risky behaviour.
Referrals are made to Croydon Youth Services who will assess the needs of the young person and create a suitable plan with a strong emphasis around local provisions that focus on interests and development needs.
CLIP caseworkers will offer approximately 4 sessions 1-2-1 with young people & maintain contact for a period of 3-6 months. Sessions are an opportunity to develop the interests and needs of young people and wherever possible link them into local provisions that they would like to explore.
