John speaks to Bali Clisby, Area Manager from The Children's Society. The Children's Society deliver services across the country to support young people and their families that might be vulnerable for a whole range of reasons.
This podcast focuses on the funding John has made available to set up the Climb Service, which will deliver an early intervention and prevention service for 10 to 17 year-olds that may be in danger of being drawn into ‘county lines’ and other forms of exploitation.
The podcast explores how the Climb Service will support the aspirations of children by incorporating sports, dance, arts and music into their lives. This helps young people to find new passions, form healthy friendships and learn how to recognise people and situations that might put them at risk.
