Installing a Youth Shelter can result in a number of positive effects both for young people and the wider community, with levels of crime, disruptive and antisocial behaviour being reduced and relationships between teens, local residents and authorities becoming greatly improved.
Popular with local councils and in accordance with The Crime and Disorder Act 1998, Youth Shelters can provide teenagers with a designated area of their own to meet and socialise with friends, which can be easily policed, rather than meeting on street corners, outside takeaways or bus stops.
The problems commonly associated with bored teenagers has resulted in the production of a good practice guide, supported by Thames Valley Police, outlining the need for Youth Shelters as a means of combating disruptive behaviour by youngsters. One ensuing recommendation is to design and install a Youth Shelter in consultation with young people, enabling them to feel involved in the project from the start and hopefully lead to longterm use of the facility.
Marshalls Urban Structures, formerly known as Urban Engineering, has worked closely with a number of local authorities in the past, resulting in having a comprehensive range of Youth Shelters designed to meet a number the modern urban environments. With an inhouse drawing team, Marshalls Urban Structures can also design bespoke Youth Shelters to meet the requirements of the site or local young people, resulting in a flexible and individual product, expertly fitted by our experienced installation teams.
Manufactured from materials designed to stand up to misuse and vandalism, Youth Shelters can be finished in a wide range of fun and striking colours.
