Croydon Local Intervention Programme (CLIP)
Croydon Local Intervention Programme, (CLIP) offers support & guidance for those aged between 8-17, living and/or educated in Croydon. The programme is designed to support young people who are showing early signs of criminality, anti-social behaviour or risky behaviour.
In order to engage in an intervention programme, all of the following must apply:
The child or young person is aged between 8-17.
The child or young person resides in Croydon.
The child or young person is not receiving support from other Council Services (i.e. Children’s Social Care/Family Solution Service).
The referring agency has gained consent from the child or young person, and family/carers.
There are early indicators of anti-social behaviour (ASB), at risk of offending, gangs, serious youth violence and criminal exploitation and wider exploitation including via social media.
There must be clear evidence of these concerns for a referral to be accepted. Examples might include, reports of ASB, arrests but no convictions, or associating with known gang members.
How referrals are made
To access this intervention programme, a Multi-Agency Referral Form, (MARF) must be completed in full and submitted to our Multi-agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) team, stating what service is required.
