Children's Services Reports

Youth Inclusion Support Programme (YISP)

Youth Inclusion and Support Programmes (YISPs) are multi-agency planning groups that seek to prevent offending and anti-social behaviour by offering voluntary support services to at-risk, 8 to 17 year olds and their families. YISPs are seen nationally as an essential contribution to reducing risk factors and enhancing protective factors by providing appropriate interventions for children at high or medium risk of becoming involved in or further involved in offending, or engaging in anti-social behaviour.

The Research and Intelligence Unit has produced two reports for the Worcestershire YISP; the first written in 2007 and the second in 2010.  The first impact assessment report identifies and explains the impact of the YISP through a detailed multi perspective exploration into the work that the YISP undertakes, whilst providing informed recommendations for future development.  The second report follows on from this, assessing the effectiveness of the scheme three years on and suggesting further areas for development in light of difficult economic conditions.  The views of the young people themselves are at the heart of both studies, and the views of their parents and the YISP staff are also included.

Children's Fund

The previous Government established Children’s Funds to provide preventive services for 5-13 year olds. They were to form part of a continuum between Surestart and Connexions.  Children's Funds ran from 2003 to 2008; from 2008 onwards they  have been known as Community Capacity.

The Research & Intelligence Unit provided evaluation support for the duration of the Children’s Fund. The reports below are examples of the work undertaken. This has included working in partnership with field researchers and the University of Worcester.
