The Police and Crime Commissioner’s Youth and Community Fund aims to support youth and community groups to deliver activities to;
- Support preventative work and early intervention approaches to divert young people and vulnerable adults away from offending and re-offending;
- Build relationships with young people improving engagement between young people, their communities, and organisations working in them.
- Promote the involvement of young people in building community resilience to crime and vulnerability through active participation aimed at building better understanding of the needs of young people;
- Work to reduce the vulnerability of young people and lessen the chance of them becoming a victim of crime.
This Fund is currently closed while the new Commissioner develops his Police and Crime Plan and carries out consultation to help shape how the fund is delivered in future.
