Who we are

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.

YLYC Brent was launched in 2014 using the successful multi-agency format of YLYC Ealing. YLYC’s role in reducing youth crime in  the Ealing area resulted in MBEs for founder Diana Dishley JP and prison officer Tony Boden in the 2013 Honours List

YLYC is a key part of our strategy for getting young people to spot
the warning signs and not get involved (in gangs and crime).
It is YLYC’s multi-agency approach and interactivity that make it successful
