Aspire Mentoring Services

What is Aspire?

In partnership with the Probation Board for Northern Ireland, Aspire works with marginalised young men (aged 16-30), who are risk of becoming involved or further involved in criminality.  It aims to prevent and reduce offending and enable young men to develop their full capacity and to resist negative influences.  

What does Aspire offer?

NIACRO delivers two parts of Aspire:

Aspire Mentoring
A mentoring programme for young men, under PBNI supervision, leaving prison or in the early stages of their community sentence.

Aspire Community Engagement 
A range of community based interventions, including restorative justice approaches, for young men who are not in the criminal justice system (and thereby not subject to statutory supervision).
