What is Street Base and what do you do?
Street Base is an organisation that provides trained street workers. They develop alcohol education and alternative and diversionary activity on the streets of South Lanarkshire.
They develop alcohol education and alternative and diversionary activity on the streets of South Lanarkshire. Street Base organises activities with young people in communities and at alternative venues.
The key concept is building up relationships with young people aged 10 – 18 years. As well as the above activities, Street Base supports young people by being available to assist with many of the issues that affect individuals, groups and communities in our society. Although our core duty involves intensive alcohol diversionary techniques, other issues such as substance misuse and anti-social behaviour often play a part.
Who are the young people Street Base work with?
Street Base works with 10 to 18 year-olds who are either misusing alcohol or at risk of misusing alcohol on the streets. These young people are often cut off from mainstream services and often involved in anti-social behaviour as a result of their drinking.
Where does Street Base work with young people?
Street Base works with young people on the streets of Regeneration Outcome Areas (ROAs) in South Lanarkshire. ROAs are communities with a number of deprivation issues.
When do the street workers meet the young people?
Street Base work with young people on Thursdays to Sundays (when they are most likely to experience difficulties) but also at other times. And it’s always at night when other services and resources are not available.
