Voyage wishes to thank all the participants who attended Lithuania for 5 days (1st Feb – 6th Feb) to engage in our amazing EU collaboration project – Climb Over.

Voyage chose to share this opportunity to share wider dialogue on the importance of engaging young offenders in youth work approaches with our partners from three youth organisations from Hackney East London. Our guest were

  • Sam Bosede from Wickers Youth Charity
  • Keeley Bennet from Hackney Marsh Partnership
  • Michaela Rodney from Hackney CVS

We are grateful to work alongside our EU partners in Liverpool, Lithuania and Croatia to explore these issues, share best practice and bring about a better environment to help young people who offend to climb over.

See short film below:
