Positive Futures addresses root causes of serious youth crime and contributes directly to making Suffolk a safer place.

We do this by…

  • diverting young people from anti-social behaviour and gang-related activity
  • supporting local communities to tackle anti-social behaviour through engagement and diversion activities
  • addressing the risk factors and strengthening the protective factors to enable young people to choose leadership and positive community action instead of crime
  • reducing crime and, by preventing offending and anti-social behaviour, decreasing demand for front-line criminal justice services
  • tackling alcohol and drug abuse.
