Prevention money criteria outlined

Youth offending teams will have to show multi-agency engagement on preventive work to obtain new funding announced this week by the Youth Justice Board.

Bob Ashford, the YJB’s head of prevention, said YOTs would have to submit proposals on how they would use their share of the £45m pot to work with children’s trusts and crime reduction partnerships.

The plans will also have to show how YOTs will take account of key principles such as young people’s participation in decisions on how the funding will be used. The funding, which runs until 2008, will go into schemes such as youth inclusion.
