A Lancashire Violence Reduction Network programme, working towards supporting young people to lead a crime free lifestyle and improve their wellbeing.

The Project.

AFC Fylde Community Foundation dedicate time to provide young people at risk, opportunities to start new employment through education and employment training.

The Foundation has secured twelve months of funding from Lancashire Violence Reduction Network and the National League Trust to run the Divert Youth Programme. Lancashire VRN has been working closely with nine northwest football charitable organisations to ensure the same offer is available to all young people across the region. The programme will see the Foundation deliver a wide range of activities to support young people aged between 11-17 who have been either arrested, not yet been arrested but identified as being involved, or at high risk of becoming involved in crime within their local community.


The Foundation is working closely with key local partners such as the youth offending team, local councils, and police services to receive referrals for the programme and ensure they are working with young people requiring the support. The programme will offer one to one support as well as small group activities and will look at topics around mental health and wellbeing, drugs and alcohol, knife crime, and community anti-social behaviour.
