In conjunction with Police officers from Hampshire Constabulary and funding from the Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner, Motiv8 designed and delivered a 10 week programme specifically aimed at reducing anti-social behaviour (ASB) in a designated neighbourhood. Police intelligence identified the young people to invite and through Motiv8’s engagement 100% retention was maintained throughout. The programme explored consequences, choices and expectations. Police reported zero ASB during, and in the aftermath, of Operation DIVERT.
Due to its success DIVERT has been repeated in other places around the borough of Havant and in Gosport and Portsmouth.
