To improve lives, we will provide family and youth support within areas of most need. This will include the improvement of access and the promotion of services that support individuals and families within their local area.

The key emphasis is on early intervention with a focus on utilising the expertise of local practitioners as well as ensuring that services are shaped by individuals with ‘lived experience’.

To improve lives, we have commissioned the following interventions:


Local Youth Fund

Empowering young people to bid for projects and activities that they believe will reduce serious violence and vulnerability in their local areas.




Empowering communities to identify and better respond to domestic abuse, by equipping them with the skills they need to help people they care about.
