SWITCH values the partnerships it has with local authorities and community workers.
Links with local social workers, police and other services have continued to develop. The police are extremely supportive of Street Team and the Community Officer for the area wrote:
"I acknowledged that the Street Team was carrying out diversionary and support work with some of the most vulnerable and high tariff youth offenders within the local community...It is evident from my own working experience with youths and families who have been connected with the Street Team, that their input is welcomed and highly sought after. It is my belief that without the continued work of the Street Team, many more young people within the community would fall into the trap of minor crime and anti-social behaviour."
