CC106b - Review of Contribution to Youth Offending Team

Closed 12 Dec 2012

Opened 18 Sep 2012


Outline of Proposal

It is proposed to reduce the provision of funding from the Safer Communities budget to the Youth Offending Team (YOT).  This funding is used to commission the Include project, where YOT workers work intensively with young people with a view to reducing anti-social behaviour and deflect young people away from criminal activity. The proposed ongoing reduction is 23% (ie £30,000 from a current annual commitment of £130,000).

General Impact

The reduction in funding may impact on the ability of YOT to maintain the Include project at its current level. 

Impact on Service Users

Any reduction in service provided may potentially impact on levels of Crime and Disorder amongst young people in the Borough.

The indicative saving for this proposal is £30,000.

As the proposal will affect service users, we have undertaken an Equality Impact Assessment to identify likely or actual effects on people with protected characteristics. The Equality Impact Assessment will be reviewed and updated as required, taking account of consultation feedback.
