                                                                Agenda Item No: 5


1.0   Introduction
1.1   The purpose of this report is to inform Members about Young People’s
      Services in Fife, to outline the services that are available, and to illustrate how
      the service is working to deliver high quality programmes for children and
      young people. The report will be accompanied by a visual presentation to

2.0   Background
2.1   The internal restructuring of Community Services created a new section
      within Community Learning & Development (CLD) called Young People’s
      Services. This new section is responsible for three major areas of work with
      children and young people:
         Childcare
         Youth Work
         Integrated Children’s Services
      It should be noted that this report is concerned with these service elements
      only. It is acknowledged that within other services and within other sections
      of Community Services there are many valuable programmes and activities
      that support children and young people.
2.2   As part of the restructuring, Community Services established a new post,
      Service Manager for Young People’s Services in August 2006. This has
      assisted the service to link more clearly the functions of youth work, childcare
      and integrated children’s services, and will ensure coherence with other plans
      and initiatives such as the Children’s Services Plan, Getting It Right for Every
      Child, and More Choices, More Chances.
2.3   In order to deliver these services across Fife, the Service Manager has the
      following budgetary responsibility:
      Childcare: gross budget £5,721,719 but with income from fees and grants of
      £3,055,069 creating a net budget of £2,666,650
      Youth Work: part time staffing budget of £737,246. Other staff costs for
      Community Education Workers who among other things manage youth work
      locally and for community centres and other facilities in which youth work
      activities take place are met through a generic CLD budget of £5.5 million.
      Integrated Children’s Services (ICS): budgets for these services are provided
      across a range of service providers. Community Services and Education
      Service provide joint funding for six ICS Community Education Workers to
      work across schools and youth work settings in Fife.

3.0   Childcare Background and Structure
3.1   Fife’s Childcare & Early Years Strategy aims to provide high quality,
      affordable, accessible, flexible childcare to enable parents to return to
      employment, training or education. The Fife Childcare & Early Years
      Partnership was founded in 1999 in response to the green paper “Meeting the
      Childcare Challenge – a Childcare Strategy for Scotland”.
3.2   The Partnership consists of representatives from projects and agencies that
      have a stakehold in childcare and it has acted as an advisory group. Its main
      remit was to be involved in planning and implementing the Childcare Strategy,
      facilitating the integration of services, responding to consultation documents
      from the Scottish Government, identifying gaps in provision, ensuring all
      sectors benefit from the childcare funding and monitoring the progress and
      work of the Childcare Strategy Team. The work of the Partnership has been
      under review and proposals for the development of a new Early Years
      Partnership will be presented to Fife Council shortly.
3.3   Childcare services are managed by a centrally based team of managers,
      development workers, training officers and administrative staff who support
      Fife Council’s own operations as well as the voluntary and private childcare
      sectors. In addition some 400 staff are employed by Fife Council in directly
      managed out of school care clubs and projects.

4.0   Childcare Services
4.1   Out of School Care
      Not only does the Childcare Team support out of school care run by the
      voluntary sector but they are also a service provider with 63 out of school
      care projects across Fife providing approximately 5000 childcare places. The
      majority of projects are based in primary schools with a few in community
      centres or church halls. Appendix 1a of this report provides details of all out of
      school care services supported or managed by Fife Childcare in the City of
      Dunfermline Area.
4.2   Crèche Services
      The Mobile Crèche Service employs approximately 30 staff and provides a
      quality childcare service to support adult education classes, Working for
      Families clients, community groups and special projects. This is a responsive
      service and in the year to date from 1st April 2007 – 31st December 2007 a
      total of 672 crèche services have been provided for 2,788 children.
4.3   Protected Places Scheme
      This scheme allows health visitors, social workers, headteachers and other
      professionals to refer children who need a positive play experience for a
      variety of reasons e.g. they may need respite if they are a carer, the family
      may be facing a crisis, a parent may be terminally ill. Children are placed in
      an out of school care project for at least 16 hours then the situation is
      reviewed. This gives the referrer additional time to put in a package of
      support for the child and family. In 2006-2007 this service supported 196
      children and its increasing value is seen in that since 1st April 2007, the
      service has supported a further 272 children.
4.4   Childcare Resource Base

      The Childcare Team operates a Resource Base that provides high quality
      toys, equipment and training materials to childcare and play providers. There
      are currently 220 member groups in the scheme. The Resource Base staff
      operate a delivery and collection service when and where required.
4.5   Childcare Information Service
      In 1999 Fife developed a Childcare Information Service in line with guidelines
      from the Scottish Executive. The information Service has details of
      approximately 776 childcare and play providers. Parents can access lists of
      registered childcare providers in their area and information and guidance on
      choosing appropriate and relevant childcare to meet their needs and the
      needs of their children. In the year 2006-2007, the service received 826
4.6   Levenmouth Childcare Centre
      In 2000 a feasibility study was carried out by Reid Howie looking at the
      childcare available in the Levenmouth area. The study identified that the lack
      of all day registered childcare was a barrier to parents accessing
      employment, training or education. Approx £1.3 million was secured to build
      a purpose childcare centre. It is expected to be completed and open by
      spring 2008. The Centre will create approximately 100 childcare places and
      16 jobs.
4.7   Working for Families Fund (WfFF)
      The Childcare Team is working in partnership to deliver the Government
      Initiative “The Working for Families Fund”. The team’s role is to access or
      provide registered childcare for WfFF clients. A total of £653,916 has been
      provided through the WfFF to provide a sitter service, a childcare subsidy
      scheme and childcare costs for parents until their benefits or tax credits have
      been received.
4.8   Children Affected by Disability
      Fife Council and its partners are committed to ensuring all children have
      access to childcare.
      Fife Council funds ENABLE to provide a PALS Project. The project provides
      1-1 support for the child, through a play friend. The play friend liases with the
      parents, trains and supports existing staff, and works towards the child being
      integrated into the play provision. There are currently 19 children benefiting
      from the PALS Project in Fife. The project has 22 referrals pending and 21
      possible placements if staffing works out.
      Children with Special Needs in Playgroups (CSNIPS) is a similar project
      providing play friends for children with special needs attending playgroups.
      Fife Council has funded CSNIPS allowing them to expand their service into
      the private nursery sector. There are currently 23 children in placements with
      2 outstanding referrals.
      A resource base has been established in partnership with the Royal National
      Institute of Blind People (RNIB). Projects can borrow specialised equipment
      to improve the quality of the play experience for children with a particular

      Infrastructure funding has been available to projects that needed to adapt
      their premises to make them suitable for children with additional support
      needs and / or expand their premises to cater for student childcare places.
      Fife Childcare Team provides out of school projects for children with profound
      or complex needs in:
            Duloch Primary School, Dunfermline
            RNIB, Sensory Impaired Unit, Kirkcaldy
            Hyndhead, Buckhaven
            Queen Anne High School, Dunfermline
            Lochgelly Community High School
            Lawhead, St.Andrews

4.9   Support to the Voluntary / Private Sector
      The Childcare Team is committed to working in partnership with services and
      agencies with a stakehold in childcare / play.
      To assist organisations to raise quality standards and achieve financial
      sustainability grant aid is available to voluntary sector out of school projects.
      Childcare Services employs two Development Workers and an Economic
      Advisor to support committees in the running of their clubs and in applying for
      funding. Fife Council currently offers five childcare and early years grants,
         Childminder Start-up Grant
         Play Organisations Small Grant Scheme
         Out of School Childcare Grant
         Out of School Care Transport Grant
         Private Nursery Grant
      The Scottish Pre-School Play Association (SPPA) also receives funding to
      provide development staff who support locally run playgroups. The staff
      provide guidance to management committees, assisting them with business
      planning, recruitment, Care Commission Inspections, quality assurance, and
      policies and procedures.
      Funding is also provided to the Scottish Childminding Association (SCMA) for
      a part-time Development Worker who supports existing childminders and new
      childminders through the registration process.

5.0   Childcare Training and Support
5.1   In Building a Better Scotland, published in September 2004, Ministers set a
      target to increase the number of qualified childcare workers in Scotland. The
      Scottish Executive were committed to drive forward a programme of work to
      develop the Early Years and Childcare workforce and provided the Childcare
      Workforce Development Fund. Fife’s budget allocation for 2007–08 has been
      £402,631. Local Authorities and Childcare Partnerships were instructed to
      take full account of the need for investment in all areas of early years and

      childcare workforce, including those employed in the private and voluntary
      sectors and childminders.
5.2   Contracts were drawn up with Colleges and local training providers for the
      delivery of childcare qualifications and related training. This process was co-
      ordinated by Fife Council’s Procurement Service. Training was delivered in a
      variety of locations to make access easier for the childcare workers. An
      online SVQ system, Learning Assistant, was developed and piloted for
      Playwork SVQ II & III and Early Years SVQ II & III. Targeted campaigns and
      programmes were developed to recruit men and individuals from black and
      ethnic minorities into childcare.
5.3   The number of individuals undertaking training supported through Fife’s
      Childcare Workforce Development Fund between April 2005 and November
      2007 is as follows:
       PUBLIC             PRIVATE              VOLUNTARY            CHILDMINDERS
       2,662              1,989                962                  1,056
      Appendix 1b of this report provides details of all childcare training held in the
      City of Dunfermline Area in 2006-2007.

6.0   Youth Work Background and Structure
6.1   In February 2004, the Scottish Executive published its revised
      guidance on Community Learning and Development and defined
      youth work as:
      Engaging with young people to facilitate their personal, social and
      educational development and enable them to gain a voice, influence
      and a place in society.
6.2   In August 2004, Fife Council’s Children’s Services Committee formally
      approved Fife’s youth work policy document, Modernising Youth Work –
      Strengthening Fife’s Future. In May 2006 and against a background of
      increasing interest in the role that youth work plays in combating anti-social
      behaviour, in supporting young people at risk, and in helping to bridge the
      opportunity gap, the Children’s Services Committee approved Fife’s Youth
      Work Strategy and Action Plan 2006-2008. This plan was designed to turn
      the aspirations of the Modernising Youth Work policy into specific targets and
      actions. A recent review of the action plan (Fife Council Education &
      Children’s Services Committee, 10 January 2008) has highlighted that of the
      40 targets identified, 26 have so far been achieved, 13 are in progress and 1
      has been abandoned. A revised Strategy and Action Plan is being developed
      for late 2008.
6.3   In March 2007, the youth work strategy for Scotland was published, stating:
      “Our long term vision for youth work has two main elements:
       all young people in Scotland able to benefit from youth work opportunities
         which make a real difference to their lives; and
       a youth work sector equipped and empowered to achieve ongoing positive
         outcomes for young people now and in the future.”
6.4   In 2006-2007, Fife Council supported 386 youth projects in communities
      across Fife, leading to attendances of 103,421 throughout the year. For the
      most part, these projects are supported by part-time youth work staff and

      volunteers. Fife Council currently employs more than 400 youth workers who
      are supported by professional Community Education Workers (CEWs). CEW
      teams are based in the six Local Children’s Service Areas across Fife and are
      managed by a Team Leader. In addition a specialist Team Leader for Young
      People’s Services has been appointed to drive forward the youth work
      strategy in Fife.
6.5   We have developed local Youth Strategy Groups across all six Community
      Learning Plan areas in Fife. These groups involve a range of services, the
      voluntary sector, and young people themselves in planning for youth work
      locally. Appendix 2 of this report provides details of youth work activities in
      the City of Dunfermline Area.

7.0   Youth Work Services
7.1   Youth Work Opportunities
      These are provided for young people across Fife with the emphasis on the
      13-18 years age group, as agreed in Fife Council’s youth work policy
      statement. Such opportunities are available in most communities in Fife in
      the form of a youth club that provides an informal setting for young people to
      take part in sporting, cultural or learning activities or to simply relax and meet
      other young people in a friendly and sympathetic environment. During the
      summer months, more emphasis is placed on work outdoors.
7.2   Detached Youth Work
      Fife Council employs six detached youth work teams, one in each Local
      Children’s Services area but focused specifically on areas of greatest need or
      where young people are considered to be a greatest risk. Detached youth
      workers engage with young people who are often not involved in organised
      activities of any sort and meet with them on their territory in streets and parks
      and other areas where young people congregate. Their purpose is to provide
      support, advice and information to young people and to encourage them to
      adopt positive lifestyles.
7.3   Dialogue Youth
      This is a national project that was initially established by CoSLA and Young
      Scot to support the modernising government agenda. Fife employs a Co-
      ordinator and three Development Workers who have five key priorities to
      support and develop:
       Youth information

       Smart card developments

       Youth research

       Personal and social education

       Democratic engagement

7.4   Support to the Voluntary Youth Work Sector
      Fife Council supports the voluntary youth work sector in a number of ways.
         We provided 29 one-off grants to the voluntary youth sector in 2006-2007.
          This comprised 18 awards to youth projects, 6 international youth
          experience awards and 5 youth volunteer grant training awards.

         We provide recurring grants to key organisations across Fife to enable
          them to deliver youth work programmes. Among those, a grant of £70,798
          was awarded to Youth First to allow them to continue Fife-wide support to
          the voluntary youth work sector.
         We have maintained our support of the Fife Youth Work Assembly, and are
          currently working with them to engage more closely with smaller voluntary
          sector youth organisations.
7.5   The Big Shout
      The Big Shout has been established as the multi-agency vehicle in Fife for
      young people’s involvement in community affairs. The support group includes
      representatives from Fife Council’s Community Services, Corporate Policy,
      Education Service, Local Office network and Social Work Service, as well as
      NHS Fife, Police, Fire Service and the voluntary youth work sector in Fife.
      The six strands of the Big Shout are:
       Scottish Youth Parliament: Ten Members of the Scottish Youth
         Parliament (MSYPs) have been elected through the Big Shout to
         represent Fife at national meetings, developing and debating a youth
         agenda for Scotland.
       Fife Youth Forum brings together young people from all over Fife to be a
         voice for youth and to promote different ways of influencing decisions
       Fife Pupils Council brings together pupil council representatives from all
       Children’s Parliament engages younger children in projects and
         investigations that seek to change their lives and their communities
       Fife People’s Panel will gain views from young people aged 10-15 years
         from surveys coordinated by the Big Shout
       Big Challenge invites young people to develop projects that will improve
         their community by bidding for Local Community Planning funding
      Our principal aim has been to create a sustainable structure around which all
      young people, regardless of their background, can be supported to have a
      say in the decisions that affect their lives. This in turn will influence change
      and provide services that are accessible, suitable and engaging for all young
7.6   Youth Achievement
      Our Voluntary Services Officer manages the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award in
      Fife and offers programmes, support and training to schools, Social Work, and
      voluntary youth organisations. In 2006-2007 this supported 38 active groups
      across Fife. A total of 147 awards were commenced (10 gold, 38 silver and
      99 bronze), and 47 awards were achieved (7 gold, 5 silver and 35 bronze).
      In addition to this we have reviewed our involvement in other youth
      achievement award programmes, particularly those supported by the
      European-funded Active Steps programmes, and we will be developing a new
      range of intiatives during 2008-2009.
7.7   Special Projects
      We are establishing service level agreements with Fife-wide organisations
      that offer specialist services and support for vulnerable young people. We are
      working with ENABLE to help ensure that young people with learning

      disabilities have access to youth work services. We are working with FRAE
      Fife to ensure that young people from ethnic minority communities have
      access to youth work services. We have agreed with NHS Fife to conduct a
      detailed and medium term needs analysis of the LGBT Youth community in
      Fife. This will be done through young people focused events, internet
      outreach, and focus groups with existing agencies and young people.

8.0   Youth Work Training and Support
8.1   For the second year, we have developed a comprehensive programme of
      core skills and specialist training for youth workers and publicised these in an
      annual brochure and calendar. H. M. Inspectorate of Education highlighted
      the programme as an example of good practice, and said “Fife CLD has
      developed an extensive introductory training programme for youth workers
      …both full-time and sessional staff felt well supported in their work.” In 2006-
      2007, we delivered 23 courses to 333 staff across Fife. The 2007-2008 plans
      will provide 25 courses for 413 staff.
8.2   We have trained 30 staff in Community Services to deliver child protection
      training to all staff in the service. All staff working with young people are
      trained to national level 2 in child protection.
8.3   We have worked with Adam Smith College on the Modern Apprenticeship
      Scheme in Youth Work and In December 2007, three Fife Council youth
      workers became the first graduates in SVQIII/ Modern Apprenticeships in the
      UK from this scheme. Three full time staff supporting them have also
      completed an A1 Assessor Award.
8.4   We are working with Youth First to develop a programme of young leader
      training opportunities. In December 2007, two young leaders were supported
      to evaluate the SMIT training courses and their report will help provide future

9.0   Integrated Children’s Services (ICS) Background and Structure
9.1   The Scottish Executive launched the New Community Schools initiative in
      November 1998 and later re-branded it to “Integrated Community Schools”.
      The initiative aimed to address the needs of children through better
      integration of services to overcome barriers to learning and positive
      development through family support, family learning and health improvement.
      The approach is fundamental to raising attainment, achievement and
      promoting social inclusion amongst pupils, their parents and the wider
9.2   Following a successful pilot phase, the approach was rolled out across Fife
      and comprised:
         Six local Children’s Services groups to jointly plan and manage the
          delivery of integrated services and to roll out the Integrated Community
          Schools approach.
         The appointment of an Integrated Community School Manager and 6
          Integration Managers to lead and co-ordinate developments, encourage
          the sharing of good practice and help ensure that existing resources are
          used as effectively as possible.

          The creation of Family Support Teams across each of the six areas of
9.3    Engagement with the wider community was one of the key strands to this
       integrated children’s services approach, and in 2005 it was agreed to create
       six Community Education Worker posts across Fife, with one attached to
       each of the area teams. The posts were to focus on transition work, family
       learning, alternative curriculum opportunities, and links for young people into
       their local communities through youth work and other mechanisms.
9.4    These posts are jointly funded by Education Service and Community Services
       and are managed by Community Services under the strategic direction of the
       Service Manager, Young People’s Services and the Integrated Community
       School Manager. In addition, the engagement with the wider community
       strand is now an integral part of the work of the Community Learning &
       Development Partnership.

10.0   ICS and Young People’s Services
10.1   There has been universal recognition that the establishment of the ICS
       Community Education Worker posts across Fife have brought benefits to both
       the Education Service and to Community Services. They have created a
       close relationship between schools and the wider youth community, and this
       has brought opportunities for young people that might not otherwise have
       existed. This approach has been praised nationally, including support from
       HM Inspectorate of Education.
10.2   In addition to these posts, Young People’s Services and CLD are closely
       associated with the development of integrated services for children and young
       people. CLD are represented at key strategic groups such as the Children’s
       Services Group, and at each of the Local Children’s Services Groups.
       Planning is much more joined up with CLD playing a full role in the
       development of Joint Action Teams, School Liaison Groups, More Choices,
       More Chances and so on.
10.3   Appendix 3 to this report provides a snapshot of the work of the ICS
       Community Education Worker in the City of Dunfermline Area. This may help
       Members understanding of the issues that are addressed and the role that is

11.0   Conclusions and Recommendations
11.1   Young People’s Services has been established as part of the restructuring of
       Community Services to manage and develop childcare and youth work and
       support and contribute to integrated children’s services in Fife. With nearly
       one thousand, albeit mainly part-time staff, it provides a wide range of
       opportunities for thousands of children and young people across Fife.
11.2   Members are asked to note and comment on the content of this report, and to
       support the steps being taken to provide quality young people’s services in

Report by: Yvonne Crombie, Childcare & Early Years Coordinator

This report provides a note of all childcare operations in The City of Dunfermline
