Your Life You Choose Brent delivers a one day multi-agency presentation to educate young people about the consequences of crime, not only for the offender but their family and friends, victims and the wider community. The project is led by magistrates in the North West London Justice Area. YLYC Brent brings together magistrates, police – safer schools officers & trident officers, prison officers, EOTAS – inclusion officers, Directions project – ex offenders, paramedics, education consultation in cyberbullying & sexting. We present to secondary schools and PRU’s throughout the borough.
