KD 4911 - Reducing youth crime and exclusions across Enfield

Given the increase in youth crime, violence, and exploitation in Enfield the council has invested £1 million over two years into a range of interventions and diversionary activities to reduce violence and exploitation e.g. through support to schools to reduce exclusions and provide additional support and activities to young people as risk of criminal involvement. At the core of this offer is Nexus, a programme that will be led by the Secondary Behaviour Support Service and which with the Youth Development Unit will provide the overarching support programme for engaging schools and young people.

The main aim is to connect with young people, parents, schools, faith groups, local businesses, professionals and the police, not only to make Enfield a safer borough to live in, but to empower our community to unite together and stay connected by forging positive relationships
