Prevention is the first level of engagement to divert those at risk of becoming involved in crime and antisocial behaviour. GCSS operates in the belief that it is better to prevent than react to an issue. GCSS has a wide range of services and approaches targeted in particular at young adults and children. These methods prevent and direct them away from antisocial behaviour and encourage them into positive, constructive lifetstyles.
