    • Development of a Youth Centre Hub Strategy
    • The decision making role of young people
    • The importance of Leeds Youth Work Partnership
    • The resultant capacity and role of Leeds City Council to operate an integrated capital strategy
    • Some quick examples of progress
    Presentation will focus on key themes
  • 3. Leeds Integrated Youth Support Service
    • A “home” for an Integrated Capital Strategy
    • Phase one of IYSS in Leeds brings together, as from April 2008, the following :
    • Youth Work provision via Leeds Youth Work Partnership
    • A localised Connexions service
    • Youth Volunteering
    • PAYP and Out of School Activities
    • Coordination of youth engagement and decision making, including Youth Opportunity Fund and Youth Capital Fund.
    • All this is agreed by the Council’s Executive Board
  • 4. Youth Centre Hub Strategy
    • Builds on Leeds participation in Make Space project
    • Sets out to develop and/or establish integrated quality youth centres:
    • One in each of 5 wedges (possibly more than one)
    • Residential care
    • Alternative curriculum activity centre
    • City centre provision for vulnerable young people
  • 5.
    • All youth work provision to take place via
    • mobile units
    • hiring and/or using community centres as required
    • hiring and/or using other buildings as required
    • grants and commissioning voluntary organisations
    • Youth Service freed up from previous substantial building responsibilities
    • Hub centres have multi agency and multi purpose focus
    • Quality is prioritised
    • Wherever possible, part of 0-19 provision too
  • 6. Decision Making Role of Young People
    • Extending previous role operated in relation to Youth Capital Fund.
    • Youth Council is the accountable body
    • Important partnership with Reach Out and Reconnect (ROAR) ensuring hard to reach groups are fully involved
    • LCC ratification process of decisions is light touch and rapid
    • Targets set out in “Aiming High for young People” yet to be presented to Executive Board but every reason to be hopeful of a positive response.
  • 7. Leeds Youth Work Partnership
    • Different to a Voluntary Youth Organisation’s Network (VYON). LYWP may be unique?
    • Joint approach to service planning and delivery of services via LYWP
    • Combined sources of funding increase scope of youth work provision and scope for capital developments
    • Voluntary sector very often providing good quality centres already
    • Joint funding panel for use of LCC Youth Work budgets
    • Agreed quality assurance, MIS and performance management
    • A shared responsibility for targets
  • 8. Capacity and Role of Leeds City Council
    • IYSS to extend role to take lead responsibility for Ten Year Youth Strategy
    • All the themes described earlier will all play a part to shape the future for an integrated capital strategy
    • Working with 4Children to make full use of their Aiming Higher Quality Improvement Scheme
    • Ability to draw on a very wide range of funding sources, both nationally and locally
    • A very encouraging and positive time!
  • 9.
    • The Market Place
    • South Leeds hub centre
    • (to be described verbally on the day of the presentation)
