The ‘Oot and Aboot’ project was developed in response to concerns about antisocial behaviour and youth annoyance incidents.
The programme was designed to re-engage with the young people of Peterhead. Based on validated information and local knowledge a programme was developed using circus skills to appeal to the risk taking and thrill seeking young people by providing exciting experiences in a positive, controlled environment. Support from Police Scotland, Scottish Fire & Rescue Service and Community Safety ensured that the programme delivered targeted interventions in ‘Hot Spot” areas, to engage the young people who were causing the issues, and direct them towards social, positive activities as a route towards a more positive lifestyle. This has led to residents feeling safer in their local community and to use their open spaces more.
