The overall aims of the PSP are to combat the development and perpetuation of antisocial patterns of behaviour, and to reduce and prevent offending in order to reduce the number of children and young people being excluded from school and/or placed on supervision.  The project aims to enhance parental support in order to promote parental responsibility and ‘good enough’ parenting, and to sustain parent/child relationships and the family unit.
