PEOPLE are being invited to celebrate a ten-year stretch with a difference.

The Teesside Justice Support Project was set up a decade ago in an attempt to cut juvenile crime rates, through working with young people.

The project which achieved a 36 per cent reduction in re-offending rates in the Cleveland Police area during its pilot phase, now delivers a diversity of programmes, even offering advice and guidance to parents.

Past and present staff and volunteers and users are being asked to contact the project's South Bank office if they want to attend one of three open days being held later this month. For more details, contact (01642) 282122.
