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

Our approach

Our work across Suffolk positives addresses youth violence in Suffolk 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.

Our Impact

In the past five years the project has achieved the following:

  • Supported 5361 individual young people (total number of individual young people 2013-2018)
  • Received over 55,000 attendances to the project
  • Provided over 80,000 contact hours
  • Delivered over 4000 sports sessions and provided 6000 hours of free activities
  • Provided young people with the opportunity to complete over 1000hrs of volunteering
  • Enabled young to achieve over 150 qualifications
