Securing a Brighter Future: The role of youth services in tackling knife crime
This report makes four recommendations to bolster youth services and prevent knife crime:
- Conduct a national audit of youth services in England.
- Fund local authorities to invest in sustainable long-term youth work.
- Introduce a clear statutory requirement to local authorities for a minimum level of professional youth services provision.
- Invest in a professional youth workforce – because youth services are more than buildings.
