Funding youth workers in hospitals

The Mayor of London will continue to invest in youth workers in the emergency department (A&E) at St Thomas’ Hospital. In total, £4 million will be invested to increase the number of youth workers in thirteen hospitals across the city.

 

Guy’s and St Thomas’ provides a service with Oasis Youth Support to help steer young people away from violence. Evidence shows that it leads to reduced attendance at A&E, due to violence, for the young people it works with.

 

Tom Isaac, Oasis Youth Support manager, says: “We see young people who are too traumatised to leave the house after being attacked in their community. We take our service to them, on their terms and help them rebuild their lives in any way we can.”
