STREET which stands for Supportng, Training, Raising Expectations, and Empowering Teenagers is a unique service which supports young people in Hartlepool.

The STREET project is a befriending service held at the One77 facility on York road on a Monday and Thursday night. It is a safe social environment for individuals often with special needs and requirements to interact and socialise. The service is aimed at young people aged 13-19 years. 

We aim to give young people the essential support and encouragement to help them overcome issues with social skills, self esteem and emotional trauma. Everyone at STREET is understanding and supportive of each others situation.

With the help of our highly skilled support workers and volunteers we try to build on friendship, social skills, and confidence. We do this by encouraging the young people to participate in numerous fun activities including; playing on the Nintendo Wii, cooking, computing and watching DVD's, amongst other activities. In an effort to restore their confidence and guide them on to the right path.

In addition to this, we have an additional group called STREET Juniors, which is offers an identical service at the above but aimed at children aged 6-12 with additional needs. STREET Juniors takes place on a Monday and Friday evening at One77.
