Off The Rails!!!


Working closely with Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing and local residents, young people from the Youth Offending Team have completely revamped a large quantity of metail handrails in the Batley Carr area.

Over a period of months they have attended and after rubbing down the surfaces with sandpaper have applied gloss paint to leave them looking as good as new.

Made at the Youth Justice Centre


Kirklees Youth Justice Centre runs fortnightly on Saturday mornings in the centre of Dewsbury. Young people who have been directed to come here get involved in a wide variety of sessions from classroom based “victim awareness” to practical, hands on tasks such as woodworking and baking.
Amongst some of the things produced recently have been scones and decorated boxes to put them in which have been passed onto the Age Concern Day Care Centre in Bradley where we are told they were very much appreciated and very quickly devoured!!!.
Young people have also been very busy in the wood workshop producing bird boxes as well as a hoopla game. Again these have been passed onto the day care centre at Bradley and enjoyed by staff and service users alike. In fact, the Hoopla game will be forming an integral part of the day care centre’s summer fair activities.
