The Police and Crime Commissioners in Wales are working in partnership to deliver a funding programme (June 2019 – March 2020) to explore youth work approaches to early intervention and prevention as part of the Early Intervention Youth Fund.
The Fund aims to provide support for early intervention and prevention programmes that:
- Deliver services to support and prevent young people from getting involved in crime by supporting positive activities.
- Deliver positive outcomes for young people, focused on addressing risk factors linked to serious violence.
- Build on, and develop, our understanding of what works in practice for tackling these risks factors.
- Drive improved local, multi-agency partnership working; and most crucially, reduce the levels of serious violence and crime.
We are looking to fund projects mainly working with 11-18 year olds but will consider projects with young people aged up to 25 years, who may be at risk of criminal involvement, as victims and/or perpetrators.
