Croydon commits £250k to support borough youth

Wednesday, 28th February 2018

 Youth projects and community groups that work to help young people make positive choices are to benefit from a boost of a quarter of a million pounds.

The funding was announced by councillor Alisa Flemming, cabinet member for children, young people and learning, at Monday’s cabinet meeting.

The money will be used in a range of ways – to support early-stage funding for groups that wish to start initiatives to support young people, to match-fund plans already in place and to help existing groups reach more youngsters borough wide by investing in their outreach programmes.

“The cash supports the message of the council’s Choose Your Future campaign, which aims to encourage young people to make positive choices, and to
raise young people’s awareness of knife crime.

“This money will boost the amount of work we do to support young people, from helping new youth groups and support services set up, to adding further backing to the borough’s existing youth and outreach groups.

“We will back our youth and community groups and grass-roots level, to ensure we are working within all sectors of our diverse community.”

The youth work will be funded by the 2018/2019 budget.
