According to a recent report from the National Youth Agency, placing ‘on-road’ support workers for young people in communities affected by gang violence is vital to prevent acts of violence among youngsters. The ‘on-road’ approach refers to less structured and informal practices of Youth Work which is particularly effective in engaging young people that live antisocial lifestyles or live in high-crime environments.
Report author Craig Pinkney, a criminologist and youth sector specialist, urges youth support workers to “work with young people on the frontline” and highlights the importance of youth workers adopting the on-road method as a means to “engage with young people around the issues of gangs and violence in such spaces”. Pinkney also notes that youth support workers in this sector can safeguard their credibility within communities by ensuring they understand young people’s lives that can only come by immersing themselves in their environments, including their language, behaviour, and dress code.
