We are making available £11.9 million over four years through the Youth Crime Prevention Fund. Thirty-four voluntary sector projects will be funded, widening the range of crime prevention activities tackling youth crime increasing the support available to victims and families. The Intensive Support Fund will invest £9.2 million in 21 projects to enable local authorities and voluntary organisations to increase community-based supervision of young offenders and improve the transition back to the community from secure accommodation.

£580,000 over three years has been allocated to Young Scot for a project which will strengthen links between young people and the police. The police themselves will receive £1 million to provide for a Scottish-wide application of restorative cautions and for the establishment of a central database of vulnerable children in Strathclyde.

Significant additional resources have also been provided to local authorities to help them strengthen and expand local youth justice activity.
