Using PCC funding, Middlesbrough Community Safety Partnership will commission a Voluntary and Community Sector organisation to deliver a targeted street based youth outreach service with the aim of reducing youth antisocial behaviour in Middlesbrough.
The service will deliver a range of early intervention, diversionary and positive activities.
They will centre on assertive street-based youth work. Activities will engage with young people who are involved in, or at risk of becoming involved in antisocial behaviour.
The service will be intelligence-led. It will be delivered in a reactive manner, providing short-term interventions in antisocial behaviour hotspots.
Partnership information and analysis will identify the locations. They will be reviewed at local multi-agency meetings. The delivery organisation will sit on these meetings.
A Local Authority will coordinate the commissioned Targeted Youth Outreach Service and report back to the OPCC on activity undertaken with PCC funding.
