NORTH Devon College students have designed and launched a new leaflet aimed at helping to reduce anti-social behaviour.The BTEC Public Services students have worked with Safer North Devon and local police to produce the flyer, which is aimed at 10 to 17-year-olds, offering advice and information on avoiding anti-social behaviour or becoming a victim of it.Before embarking on the project, the students met with the police and Safer North Devon to understand more about anti-social behaviour. They then did their own research to design and produce their leaflets summarising points they considered were the most relevant.Safer North Devon ASB Officer Kate Morne said: "A number of students came back with excellent design ideas and it was clear that by consulting with young people we gained a better understanding of what young people want to know about ASB. "It's important young people are aware of who can help them if they become a victim of anti-social behaviour."The leaflet will be available in public places, especially those where young people gather, to inform them about the basics of ASB, as well as sent to secondary schools to be used as part of Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE.) Sent to youth clubs and voluntary organisations.
