Share Of More Than £16million Allocated To Notts Initiative

10th October 2019
News

In the first grant round of the £200m Youth Endowment Fund established by the Home Office, 22 projects across England and Wales will share in £16.2m to help prevent youth offending by intervening early to stop children getting dragged into crime.

 

Life Skills Education, part of the DARE 25 programme has been awarded the money to continue the excellent work they do in the Nottinghamshire area.

 

Each project will be evaluated to build and share knowledge of the types of interventions which are most effective at preventing young people from being drawn in to crime and violence. From intensive family therapy to street-based and school mentoring programmes, 30,000 young people between the ages of 10-14 will directly benefit from groundbreaking interventions that the Youth Endowment Fund will support, evaluate and where they are shown to have impact, grow.

 

The first grantees include organisations adapting well established programmes with good evidence from other parts of the world, as well as newer community projects testing more innovative approaches. Further grant rounds will be announced in the coming months.

 

Andy Ratcliffe from the Youth Endowment Fund said: “Young people being drawn in to violent crime is an issue of huge concern for communities right across the country. The Youth Endowment Fund is a serious long-term commitment to tackling this problem. Weʼll fund, support and evaluate front line interventions to start making a difference now, while building a knowledge base of what works, what doesnʼt and where we need to focus our resources.”
