||Funding - International Football Tournament

This year’s tournament will take place on Saturday 15th June. The significant and underpinning aim of this event is to promote community cohesion, reduce fear of crime/fear of authorities and enhance social integration between various social and cultural groups living in Teesside. Organisations such as health services and the Police will be invited to attend and hold a stall. This will help refugees and people seeking asylum to better understand how to access these services and to encourage them to report crime.
The funding provided will pay for the pitch hire including referees for the day and catering costs for the 200 people who are expected to attend.

||Funding - Cleveland Police Cadet Programme
The Cleveland Volunteer Police Cadet programme is open to young people aged 13 to 17 years inclusive, with separate Cadets Units in each Local Policing Area, who meet on a weekly basis for two and a half hours.
The Programme has several key aims:
• To promote a practical understanding of policing amongst young people.
• To encourage a spirit of adventure and good citizenship.
• To support local policing priorities through volunteering.
• To inspire young people to participate positively in their communities.
In order to achieve these aims the Cleveland programme has a curriculum covering seven key areas of skills and development:
• Citizenship and Volunteering
• Life Skills
• Health and Fitness
• Outdoor Activities
• Purpose of the Police
• Crime Awareness
• Community Safety
The programme aims to build bridges within communities, working to reduce the risk of crime and encouraging progression towards responsible adulthood, by providing a range of transferable skills to young people.
The funding of £36,000 will cover the costs of a Cadet Co-ordinator at 15 hours per week, a Programme Support Worker at 15 hours per week, 2x Youth Workers at 7.5 hours per week and a Supervision/Safeguarding Lead at 2 hours per week (hours are subject to change but will not exceed the stated hours). An additional funding claim can be made up to the value of £2,000 during the term of the agreement to cover uniform costs.
The cadets also undertake a range of fundraising activities to supplement funding received through the PCC.
A full options appraisal for future provision of the Cadet Programme will take place during 19/20 for the next financial year.
