Nest Lancashire is the new young peoples’ service, set up to support children and young people across Lancashire who perceive that they are victims. This new and exciting project has been funded by the Police and Crime Commissioner and brings together six key services to operate pan-Lancashire. Key will cover Preston, Chorley, South Ribble and West Lancashire.

The aim of the service is to provide holistic support for young people aged between 10-17 years who have been, or are currently, a victim and require support to move forward. This can be a victim of either reported or unreported crime, or of incidents that may lead to criminal actions should the young person be left unsupported, e.g. ongoing bullying or teasing, peer isolation, cyber-bullying, harassment, etc. 

The service will provide fluid and flexible support and will be tailored to meet the needs of each individual young person offering both emotional and practical support. We aim to listen to young people and empower them to feel more confident and more in control, using a family approach wherever possible.
