M.A.L.S Merseyside are a registered charity working in the crime prevention field. We are dedicated to helping young people between the ages of 11-19 and victims of homicide and domestic abuse. We Mentor those who need us, help those to Achieve, assist them to Learn and Support them every step of the way and long after.
We have a bank of volunteers with different types of life experiences and various expertise, these include both victims of crime and also volunteers whom have been involved in criminal activity. We're real people, talking about real life experiences.
We don't talk rubbish and our volunteers are honest and upfront about their own personal experiences. These experiences include telling the truth about the horrors that can happen in prison, the trauma they have been through by losing a loved one, how they have turned their life around after suffering from domestic abuse and many more other life experiences.
We deliver various crime prevention programmes in subjects such as gang culture, gun crime, knife crime, bullying, and many more, ending with a life skills session. We also offer a range of services including group sessions and one to one mentoring.
It has been proven that our services have helped to prevent crime in Knowsley. So M.A.L.S Merseyside also works as part of Knowsley Integrated Offender Management Team (IOM), to provide focused support and mentoring opportunities.
