Intervention: Early Intervention Programme

The Early Intervention Programme is a holistic intervention to improve life chances and reduce pathways into offending through the use of bespoke music and drama projects, one-to-one therapeutic intervention and parental support programmes, all specifically designed to address the underlying issues that often lead to criminal and anti-social behaviour.

The project will target children aged 8 to 14-year-olds in dysfunctional family units where crime and poverty are prevalent, and where many of the children experience chaotic lifestyles with acute needs and issues including neglect, abuse, domestic violence, alcohol, crime, poor school attendance and low attainment.

Delivery organisation: Malachi Community Trust

Malachi Community Trust has been delivering the individual elements of this programme in schools and children’s centres throughout Birmingham for around 20 years.
