Designed by the community, for the community
The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, The Violence Reduction Network (VRN) and Leicester City Council (LCC) as part of their shared commitment to prevent and reduce violence affecting young people, are inviting tenders for the delivery of a new community mentoring project.
The project, which was co-designed with local community groups will focus its support within East Leicester, West Leicester and the Charnwood area of Leicestershire. It will have a strong focus on those young people who are not accessing or being reached by existing services and that would benefit from a community outreach approach to prevent further involvement in violence.
Importantly the project is to be embedded in communities and will have the following unique offering:
Uses the reach of local communities to engage young people and connect them to the services and resources they need
Draws on resources and expertise within communities
Offer credible mentors who are representative of the young people they seek to support
Adopts an outreach approach which is flexible, responsive and persistent
Is delivered by the community but actively supported by all relevant partners
The project will become part of an existing multi-agency partnership approach to build stronger, safer communities; and demonstrates the systems commitment to continue empowering communities to play a central role in preventing crime and violence.
A formal tender process has been launched to select a provider to deliver the innovative Community Mentoring Project directly to communities, utilising the local reach and footprint that groups offer.
The deadline for applications is noon on 24th September 2021
