As part of Covid-19 funding to address issues in Cumbria, we were funded to address issues with Knife and weapon crime.
The purpose of this intervention was to address:
A new project funded by Cumbria Police and Crime Commissioner and delivered by Resource Creatives across Cumbria to May 2020. The funding will be used to deliver an range of preventative interventions for young people within schools and or Pupil Referral Units to help them stay safe and make positive life decisions. The grant will work with Cumbria Constabulary to identify schools and or Pupil Referral Units that would benefit most from this project. Resource Creatives will work with Cumbria Constabulary to identify the topics of the programmes to be delivered according to individual needs.
Our offer is to deliver sessions that can be delivered in single or multiple sessions to 16 Primary or High Schools across Cumbria as identified by the Police as most in need of this intervention instead of a set number of schools.
The sessions we can offer have been identified by schools and police from evaluations from previous delivery of issue based projects in Cumbria Schools and is in line with the Police and Crime Commissioners Plan.
Session subjects can be amalgamated and tailored to meet individual school need.
