Walsall Street Teams

  • Over the past 10 years, Walsall Street Teams have been working with people of all backgrounds and ages to support and empower them to make informed choices about their future.

  • Currently, Walsall Street Teams has 3 main project areas -

  • Jigsaw Project - Support for young people under 18 who are at risk of sexual exploitation.

  • Solomon Project - Run by the Jigsaw Project. Awareness training for young people looking at staying safe from sexual exploitation and unhealthy relationships.

  • Drug and Alcohol Project - Education on the risks and laws surrounding drugs and alcohol.

The Solomon Project

Solomon was developed as a result of acknowledging the damaging effect that underage prostitution, now rightly known as child abuse, has on young people. The ‘Young People in Prostitution Forum’ identified the need to heighten young people’s awareness of safety issues, and harm of abusive relationships. After a series of discussions the Solomon Project was developed.

The presentation of factual information focuses on the potential dangers and risks of exploitative relationships. Solomon aims to empower young people to be able to choose healthy relationships and keep themselves safe.

The primary function of Solomon is to create an awareness of the issue, and reassure pupils that there is support and advice available. Solomon hopes that young people will learn to recognise the warning signs of an abusive relationship. Through Solomon, we hope to explore safe boundaries in relationship behavior and divert young people from becoming victims of abuse.

A short time for us to introduce ourselves to the class, tell them why we are here and set any ground rules for the pupils.

  • Dodgy or Safe!!

    • Pupils will be given three scenarios on the screen and will be asked to vote via their handsets on whether it is a safe or unsafe circumstance or if they are unsure. One of the team will then feedback on each questions by using film clips, slide shows, illustrations, and short simple discussions.

Subjects covered in the three questions are internet safety, getting into cars with strangers, peer pressure.

Endorsements from Teachers

The presentation is very age appropriate and involves many different teaching styles to appeal to all types of learners. The use of easy click (who wants to be a millionaire style!) allows event the shyest pupil to express their opinion. The members of the team deal with the subject matter in a sensitive manner, and build good relationships with the pupils. They also provide a service for any issues that may arise during the session via out of school counselling with pupils and/or parents. (Miss K. Skinner – Head of Health, Barr Beacon, Walsall)

Your session on Healthy Relationships was very well received and we appreciate all the work that you put in preparation. The importance of Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education is often under-valued and good input is difficult to find. Therefore, I appreciate your willingness to offer your expertise to us on this day. (Mrs R. Downes – Head of PSHCE, the Kingswinford School, Dudley)

The Lessons have been pitched at exactly the right level, as has been your attitude and approachability. You have made many of our pupils think far more carefully about possible consequences to choices they make. For this, and for the manner and presentations of the lessons, thank you. (Mr E. Powell – Head of PSHE, Brownhills, Walsall)
