Description of Activity

E.Y.E.S is a citywide "collaborative partnership" organisation based in Wolverhampton.

  1. We operate a "Grass roots gang intervention programme" using ex gang members and specialist youth mentors who have been specifically trained (inc.high risk mediation training) to engage young people on the fringes of the negative gang culture and low level antisocial behaviour leading to violent youth crime as well as gang nominals who have become disillusioned with the gangs and need support to exit. Our work involves engaging those that carry knives and guns for protection reasons or one or all of the three 'Rs' i.e Revenue, Respect, Revenge. We operate in a safe environment and deliver our 'Wise up!' intervention programme that includes creative actives and mentoring. 'The Wise Up' programme enables young people to better express themselves, challenge negative behaviours, learn new sills and make better life decisions.
  2. We offer a support service providing mediation and conflict resolution solutions in critical youth and gang conflict situations.
  3. E.Y.E.S have been commissioned by the Police and Safer Wolverhampton Partnership to work in gang and youth viithin our city.
