“If we improve lives, we can prevent crime.” – Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner


In this report I have joined with youth organisations from across the North East to set out the scale of the challenge facing our youth services. I also explore the solutions we need to see implemented as we seek to improve the lives of our young people, hand them access to opportunity and divert them away from criminality.

You can read the report in full along with a series of recommendations for Government here.
