Honeycomb Group's domestic abuse champion empowers young people to change their behaviour in Staffordshire
A new targeted intervention programme for young people will be delivered across Staffordshire from this month.
Honeycomb Group’s domestic abuse champion, Glow, has relaunched its 12-week XRoads programme, which provides support to young people around healthy relationships, staying safe and self-worth.
Thanks to funding from Staffordshire County Council through Staffordshire Youth Offending Service’s (SYOS) new Turnaround project, Glow will be able to provide the service to more young people in need of extra support.
The Turnaround project will see SYOS work with providers across the county to deliver targeted early intervention to young people in need of extra support, focusing on empowerment and facilitating change.

The programme’s aim is to give each child or young person a specialist toolkit to enable them to make changes in their own lives. They will also be supported around healthy relationships, self-esteem and confidence, as well as tailored intervention depending on their own individual needs.
Service Manager for Children and Young People, Sarah Buckley, explained more:
“The XRoads programme shows young people what a healthy relationship looks like and helps to improve their own self-worth and confidence. It also covers how they can keep themselves safe, consent and how to access support if they need it.
“The programme will be delivered both in a group setting, and one-to-one, depending on the individual needs and circumstances of the young person.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Staffordshire Youth Offending Service on this exciting new project. It’s given us the opportunity to revive our XRoads programme and deliver it to a brand-new group of young people, who we know it will have an incredible impact on.”
