Communications News: Barnardo's website identifies catalysts behind youth crime

Barnardo's has funded 13 young people from Blackburn and Blackpool to create a website examining the motivations behind anti-social behaviour.

The Real Headlines on Youth Crime site, at, uses film, photo-stories and music to explain what might drive young people to commit crime.

The site is designed to encourage other young people to discuss why they commit crime. It also suggests solutions to help local communities address the causes of crime, for example by converting empty houses into youth clubs and building shelters on streets to provide space for youths to mingle.

The website authors cite dirty streets, run-down housing, drink and drugs, and bad parental examples among the causes of crime.
