Sutton YOT’s ‘Healthy Lving Programme’ art exhibition- Aug 2006

Three groups of young people from the Sutton Youth Offending Team (YOT) participated in a series of Healthy Living Programmes.

Each group, over an 8 week period, explored important issues such as drugs, lifestyle, crime and sexual health, then expressed their thoughts, feelings, experiences and knowledge of these through street art.

The young people, supported by a professional artist Julian Phethean, have created nine original colourful, vibrant and thought-provoking pieces of street art that reflect pro-social, health and positive life images.

Their message/statement is aimed at encouraging other young people to live healthier lives.

The exhibition has been covered in the YJB news- please see the press page
