Carney's Community, a registered charity, gets disadvantaged and excluded young people off the street and away from a life of crime and despair by giving them skills, discipline and self respect. Their approach is unusual and particularly resource intensive but ultimately effective because they recognise that creating lasting change takes time, hard work and dedication. Their work reduces offending, re-offending and anti-social behaviour, whilst improving social mobility and community cohesion. Consequently they improve the quality of life for the communities they serve.
