iF YOU FEEL THAT YOUR CHILD OR A YOUNG PERSON THAT YOU KNOW,  MAYBE or is INVOLVED IN CRIME, THEN IT IS TIME TO CONTACT US.  At LDBR, We offer a mentoring programme to try and help PREVENT, young people going down the wrong path.  TO GUIDE THEM TO THE RIGHT ONE.  

THINGS TO LOOK OUT FOR IN A YOUNG PERSON THAT COULD POTENTIALLY BE AN ISSUE:

  • A SUDDEN CHANGE IN ATTITUDE 

  • aggressive and destructive behaviour

  • NOT ATTENDING SCHOOL 

  • HANGING AROUND PEOPLE OLDER THAN THEM

  • TAKING AN INTEREST INTO WEAPONS/DRUGS OR BOTH

  • ARRIVING HOME LATE

  • CONSTANTLY GETTING IN TROUBLE WITH THE POLICE

  • unexplained money and expensive items

  • being secretive about what they are doing and who they are with

  • returning home with unexplained injuries or looking dishevelled

Children and young people associated with gangs are in general extremely vulnerable. Children may join gangs for a number of reasons:

  • For protection from others; gangs, groups or peers

  • To feel accepted or a sense of belonging

  • For a sense of identity

  • For respect

  • Because siblings, family members or partners are gang members

  • For excitement

  • For status amongst peers and others

  • Because they feel like it’s the ‘norm’

  • For friends and acceptance

  • For potential sexual/romantic partners

  • For financial gain and other rewards

  • Out of fear, intimidation or threats

  • As a result of being groomed or recruited by gang leaders

Children may think that being in a gang may be exciting or rewarding, but the reality is very different. Being part of a gang puts children and young people at risk of:

  • Committing crime

  • Dealing, trafficking or taking drugs

  • A criminal record and higher risk of ending up in prison

  • Violence or death


At love da beat radio, we offer a free one to one mentoring service with young people to manage their expectations and to guide them onto the right path. WE ALSO OFFER VOLUNTEER ROLES AT THE RADIO STATION, FOR YOUNG PEOPLE, TO ENGAGE THEM, KEEP THEM OFF OF THE STREETS AND PREVENT THEM FROM COMMITTING CRIME.
