Community-based support

Since 2006, St Giles has been at the forefront of helping vulnerable young people who are involved in gangs, serious violence and offending.

Our approach of using people with lived experience of the issues facing our clients has led us to become one of the leading charities in this area. The insights and expertise of our staff – all of whom have personal backgrounds which relate to these issues – makes them highly sought after to work with young people who often fall through the gaps.

Addressing county lines exploitation

Rescue and Response

We are one of the key delivery agencies in the multi-agency Mayor of London funded Rescue and Response project.  It is a pan-London service helping children and young people from the capital affected by county lines activity, ensuring their safety and supporting them to resettle and rebuild their lives.  We are working with Abianda and the Safer London Foundation.

Cardiff county lines support

We have developed a specific project helping children and young people in Cardiff being exploited through county lines as the city and surrounding area working with local partners to proactively address an early identified need for this type of work in the city.

Integrated work with local authorities

Our staff are embedded in local authority Integrated Gangs Units to provide tailored support for young people and their families.

They are credible and accessible, able to engage young people that statutory agencies may find difficult to reach. Our teams work closely with partners to address local needs and priorities.
