 2018-138610 Funding - EPIC Teesside

EPIC Teesside is a social inclusion project that aims to provide activities and services to vulnerable young people and families regardless of race, ethnicity, gender or sexuality.

EPIC have recently helped to re-open the community hub at Primrose Hill in Stockton after being closed for nearly ten years. During the summer EPIC ran a successful play scheme from the hub which engaged 8-12 year old young people in activities at the centre with two young people supporting delivery from another estate who were previously involved in anti-social behaviour and have now been trained as peer mentors supporting other young people. As a result of the summer programme and feedback from the community EPIC have launched a youth club for 8-14 year olds at the hub and have requested funding from the PCC to purchase arts and crafts materials and sports equipment for their youth clubs.

The youth clubs aim to provide positive social activities to divert young people from anti-social behaviour and crime.

This request supports the PCC's objectives of Working Together to Make Cleveland Safer and Securing the Future of Our Communities.

 2018-139168 Overtime for Policing Football

An overtime budget of £88k is allocated to the policing of football matches.  This budget covers home games for both MFC and HUFC along with the cost of overtime for the provision of spotters at away games.  At the start of the financial year it was identified that £88k would not be sufficient to meet the cost of these resources based on the schedule and categories of matches.  It was however identified that the income generated from these games would exceed the income budget of £117,500, and after taking in to account all games up to 31st March 2019, this overachievement stands at £22,950. 
The anticipated spend on football overtime at year end is £140k, £52k over the budget of £88k.
