Who is Street Elite for?

Many commentators quote a figure of one million young people who are ‘NEET’ – not in education, employment or training. In reality, you can divide this group broadly into three categories: the majority are short-term unemployed while a small minority are deeply involved in crime and gangs, requiring highly targeted, individual interventions.

In-between is a significant number of disengaged, excluded young people: often they are not in the benefits system; there is no public agency specifically responsible for them; and they are at high risk of long-term unemployment with its likely impact on their health, income and life chances. These are the young people Street Elite helps.
