If you are referring a young person with any current or previous offences, it is mandatory that the REFERRAL FORM is completed (preferably by their Offending Manager) and returned to Ian Eccles (please see contact details below). Unfortunately if we do not have a completed REFERRAL FORM then will not be able to engage the young person(s) on the programme. Please note: It’s important to note that a criminal record will not necessarily prevent them from taking part.
