YMCA Bradford Preventing Youth Crime

Bradford is one of 21 Local Authority Areas to receive funding through the Troubled Families programme for tackling youth crime. This fund will bring together VCS keyworkers, police, targeted Early Help, community groups, teachers and other professionals to intervene earlier to help stop young people from becoming drawn into crime, serious violence and entering the youth justice system.

This locality based model is an extension of the existing VCS Families First partnership in Bradford comprising of Barnardo’s, Brathay Trust, JAMES and YMCA Bradford. We are currently recruiting for staff to help us deliver this important work. You can visit our recent vacancies here.
