Safer Streets Funding – Youth Provision – Expression of Interest

The Police and Crime Commissioner, Kim McGuinness, has secured funding to reduce anti-social behaviour in communities and on our public transport network across Northumberland and Tyne and Wear.

Informed by the data and insights from our ongoing work to improve safety and feelings of safety on public transport , we want part of this spend is to go towards detached youth work – providing flexible resources across the transport networks in Northumberland, Tyne and Wear; therefore, we have developed the following funding offer.

The project will fund detached youth work presence on the key public transport routes across Northumberland, Tyne and Wear at key times where people, including young people, report feeling unsafe and where youth crime and ASB has been identified of particular concern to the wider public.

The successful providers will engage with and advocate for young people to improve their feelings of safety, but also to provide brief interventions around appropriate behaviour and how behaviour can be perceived.  The provider will signpost young people to youth provision to enable more meaningful, trusted relationship building.

Closing date: 5pm on Thursday 22nd February 2024.
