Youth First began operating in Lewisham as in independent organisation on September 1st 2016, supported and funded by Lewisham Council to protect open access youth provision in the borough.
This initial funding currently comes to an end in August 2019.
In this report we have taken time to explore our success to date, demonstrate how our cost-effective model has in actuality grown provision at a lowering cost to LBL while helping young people to develop the self-confidence and life skills they increasingly need. We then look to how we can build on this success and make suggestions about our future partnership with the council.
We've broken down the report into three parts:
- The overview
- The detailed report
- The field research
The reports were published on Friday 9th November 2018.
