Devon & Cornwall Sport & Youth Justice Practitioner Engagement Day (Cornwall)

PCC Devon & Cornwall

Due to an increasing alignment between Policing, Youth Justice and Sports sector policy, the time is right to explore how these can be best utilised across Devon and Cornwall to allow young people to fulfil their potential and avoid a life of crime.

The event aims to explore the challenges to creating a robust and fit for purpose referral framework across Devon and Cornwall that would see vulnerable young people being referred into appropriate physical activity environments.

The event will be delivered in partnership with national charity StreetGames and will bring together partners from across youth justice, community safety and community sports sector, to address the challenges and identify solutions.

Having your views on the day will greatly enhance this conversation and hope you will prioritise this event.

The main aims of the day will be to work towards the development of a toolkit which could be used by sports and development and youth justice workers to encourage the use of sport in the desistance of offending. Once piloted and developed it is intended that this is rolled out nationally.
