The app has been developed by Infobuzz, an organisation that offers mentoring services, guidance and training to young people with drug addiction problems and emotional difficulties amongst other issues. The app enables young people to assess the risks of their gang involvement, to provide information to parents/carers or concerned others, and access to personal advice from support workers at Infobuzz through the 1-2-1 messaging system. The app is a discrete, confidential point of access for those who may feel trapped in a gang or are at risk of this, which was designed in consultation with a potential target audience.
We felt this is a great example of best practise to share with partners as well as sign post practitioners in general to the app, which can be accessed on mobile devices or pcs.
