Sacro provides a number of services specifically designed to support and encourage young people to desist from offending behaviour. Many of these services are based on restorative principles, which offer support to those affected by and those responsible for harm. The aim of services using restorative principles is to address behaviour in a way which empowers the people harmed, those responsible and the wider community members in order to resolve issues in a constructive way.
The service provides a support service for young people up to 18 years of age, who have been involved in persistent offending or anti-social behaviour, and are disengaged from services.
Sacro’s Court Support Service provides advice, support and guidance to those under the age of 18 who are attending Court.
The service supports young people in Aberdeen city with a realistic community based alternative to secure accommodation or custody.
These short term behaviour programmes are designed to promote discussion and reflection on areas of a young person’s life and their behaviour.
Group work sessions for three or more young people to discuss the causes and consequences of their offending behaviour.
