CYPP Key Measures of success / impact over time (comment on progress against
the measures below):

By September 2009 agree arrangements with Merseyside Police for Youth Offending
Service staff to attend custody suites to undertake triage activity.

         September 09 - Police strategic issues have resulted in a delay in the above.
          However all agreements and procedures are in place ready for
          implementation. Youth Crime Family Intervention Programme is now in place
          and recruitment to the prevention team has commenced.

By September 2009 have in place evening and weekend reparation for young
offenders as identified in the Youth Crime Action Plan.

         September 09 - This has been operative for a number of weeks and is
          proving to be a useful means of engagement. Some anecdotal evidence that
          it has reduced binge drinking for the young people involved. One young
          person continuing to work in centre for the homeless voluntarily.

By November 2009 Implement the Youth Rehabilitation order with all staff
appropriately trained and relevant systems in place.

       September 09 - Training for the Youth Rehabilitation order currently taking
        place. Yos also involved in magistrates training.

By November 2009 have an established and trained Resettlement and Remand
Management Team with appropriate service level agreements and in place with
Hindley Young Offender Institution and the education provider.

       September 09 - Team appointed. However changes in senior management at
        Hindley has delayed progression of agreements.

By January 2010 have in place an appropriately located and provisioned outreach
centre in each neighbourhood.

       September 09 Work is progressing slowly but potential agreement with the
        Fire service has been drafted.

What actions are you planning to take to improve the outcome priority?

       NI 19 - The YOS was subject to a core case inspection on its work with
        Young offenders. The post inspection improvement plan will be developed
        during October which will enable more effective assessment and sentence
        planning and risk management which will support practice.

       NI 19 - The YOS has asked NACRO to undertake some research on how the
        YOS and its partners might effectively reduce, in appropriate cases, the rate
        of custody and improve outcomes for young people

       NI 111 - The prevention Team is reviewing its practice to identify the lessons
        learnt Youth Rehabilitation order from the inspection that could be transferred
        to prevention services.

       NI 111 - The Merseyside Criminal justice Board has established a subgroup
        to consider the development of practice across its partnership that will reduce
        the number of first time entrants

CYPP Key Measures of success / impact over time (comment on progress against
the measures below):

Take-up and outcomes of Arts Projects commissioned by Arts Strategy Grant Panel
by March 2010.

         The following organisations have been commissioned to deliver the six
          strands of the Arts Strategy. (All projects are aimed at young people who are
          considered to be „at risk‟ or „hard to reach‟ and all are expected to work with a
          significant number of young people who were not previously in contact with
          the Youth Service.)

          Music – Music Development Agency
          Target - 100 young people, 15% achieving an accredited outcome
          Drama – Valley Theatre
          Target - 150 young people, 15% achieving an accredited outcome
          Dance – MYA
          Target - 150 young people, 15% achieving an accredited outcome
          Film – Keyhole Productions
          Target - 100 young people, 15% achieving an accredited outcome
          Craft – MPAC
          Target - 100 young people, 15 % achieving an accredited outcome
          Culture – Chinese Cultural Project
          Target - 100 young people, 15% achieving an accredited outcome

The Play Service Review approved by Executive Board to reflect the outcome of the
consultation with children and young people.

         The Play Service review was agreed by Executive Board on 25 September
          and will go to Select Committee in October 2009.

25 organisations to have achieved the Children & Young People’s Participation
kitemark with a further 25 registered.

         All PAYP commissioned projects comply with Liverpool Participation
          Standards
         Equality Monitoring Section of the PAYP quarterly monitoring process
          ensures consistent, relevant participation information is gathered across all
          projects.

Evidence that the Youth Offending Service Youth Council has influenced service
delivery and young people satisfaction with support.

   The YOS Youth Forum was meeting weekly from 1 April 2009. A residential was
    held at which a consultation session was held with the Head of YOS. As a result
    of this consultation the YOS Forum were invited to deliver a presentation at the
    YOS service away day. Members of the forum have consulted with other young
    people and as a result changes have been made to the décor and presentation of
    YOS premises. Attendance was generally from a core group of 3 young people
    and others who attended for short periods only. Attendance since July has been
    insufficient for meetings to continue. The nature of young people‟s involvement
    with YOS makes it difficult to maintain attendance on the forum.

There are improvements in achievement and stability of placements (school and
care) by March 2010. Placement stability is measured by NI 62 (number of
placements) and NI 63 (length of placement). These are both reported on in B1
“Improve placement stability for looked after children” Report Card, details as below.

By 31/03/09 to improve NI 62 from 13.2 % to 13.0 % (lower numbers being better).

   August 09 out-turn is 13.9%. We have an action plan which is addressing this
    issue from all aspects. GONW has recognised that this indicator is problematic
    across the region and is calling a special conference to look into the problem.
    The strategy to bring LAC back into in house provision, plus the increase in
    numbers of LAC, plus the unseen consequence of our contract for emergency
    Fostering Provision with Barnardos has resulted in deterioration of performance.
    Another factor has been the increasing number of LAC requiring placements
    since Autumn 2008 post the Baby P case receiving national publicity.

Improve NI 63 (formerly PAF OD78) from 72% to 70%

   August 09 out-turn is 69.7%. Training Foster Carers to ensure they understand
    the importance of placement stability and the expectations LCC has of them in
    this area. Introduced Disruption Review system to immediately address
    placements under threat and take remedial action. Developing behaviour
    Management guidance to inform Foster Carers how to work with children with
    difficult behaviour. Training Foster Carers in de escalation techniques for
    managing difficult behaviour. Working with independent providers via our
    commissioning arm to ensure carers only end placements when the risk is
    unmanageable using our Children‟s Homes as exemplars. We‟ve changed our
    emergency provision to provide care for up to 2 months.

What actions are you planning to take to improve the outcome priority?

       The YOS forum will be re-launched in October/November and efforts will be
        made to recruit new young people to participate. Links will be established with
        the Youth Service participation structure, eg. Youth Council & Youth Advisory
        Groups, in order to encourage young people‟s continuing involvement with
        the Forum even after their direct involvement with YOS has ended.

            user monitoring system does not have this facility. The EYS system is
            being phased with full implementation by November 2009. Consultation
            with young people concluded that there was more demand for weekend
            opening than for Friday evenings and this is reflected by the performance
            indicators. Therefore the user monitoring system for 09/10 was set up to
            count weekend openings, not including Fridays.

CYPP Key Measures of success / impact over time (comment on progress against
the measures below):

Number of activities available Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday, and the number
of young people taking up these services by March 2010

           Up to the end of August there were a total of 167 occasions where Youth
            Service provision was available on Saturdays and 93 on Sundays. The
            EYS system shows 562 young people attending on Saturdays (based on
            57 of the 167 Saturdays) and 250 young people attending on Sundays
            (based on 27 of the 93 Sundays). It is therefore reasonable to estimate
            that around 1647 young people have attended on Saturdays in total and
            around 861on Sundays.

Numbers of young people supported and engaged in positive activity through
outreach teams by March 2010

           Up to the end of August 2009 1035 young people were engaged by Youth
            Service outreach and detached teams.

Number of young people accessing positive activity through the Secondary
Education Centre by March 2010

           Discussions are underway regarding the establishment of a youth work
            staff team to support the engagement of young people in positive activity
            through the Secondary Education Centre.

Completion of capital programme for the Anfield site and number of young people
accessing services by March 2010

           A potential alternative site/partner has been identified and work is
            underway to explore the capital options. The potential partner already
            delivers some Alternative Education and evening work from the site and
            therefore there should be no significant community issues. The project
            offer is likely to be more limited than the original Pinehurst proposal, but
            the core elements would be retained.

Number of young people engaged in targeted activities and reduction in youth related
anti social behaviour hotspots by March 2010

           In May LASBU consulted on the revising the ASBO protocol, a launch of
            the new protocol is planned for the summer. Year to date LASBU‟s
            interventions include, 17 warning letters, 18 signed ABC‟s, 8 refused
            ABC‟s, 10 ASBO‟s, 3 CRASBO‟s and 15 interim ASBO‟s.

                                               6
Reduction in reports of anti-social behaviour in areas with targeted activity

           Number of ASB incidents reported per 1,000 population to the police -
            compared to the same period last year we have seen a reduction of
            10.9%. This improvement is expected to continue with the police and local
            authority dealing proactively with anti-social behaviour through the CDRP
            with local concerns being met through "Respect weeks of action" and
            "Your community matters" events. Linked to this a number of strategies
            are being delivered through the "youth task force" agenda.

Improvement in the perception of safety reported by young people

           The annual audit is now taking place utilising a paper based approach for
            primary age pupils and an electronic web based questionnaire for
            secondary age pupils. The audit questions have been amended following
            consultation with all key stakeholders. The audit is in line to be published
            in November with a formal report to Select Committee in January 2010.

An increase in young people at risk of crime and anti social behaviour engaging in
positive activity

         Up to the end of August 2009 the PAYP – funded projects have engaged
          with 722 young people. These projects are intended to provide
          additionality, particularly at weekends, and to target young people who
          are at risk of becoming involved in crime or anti-social behaviour.
        In Liverpool East four „Craze‟ events were held in partnership with Leisure
          Services which were attended by approximately 400 young people each.
An increase in young people taking up education and/or treatment for alcohol and
substance misuse

           100% of those eligible are screened for substance misuse, and 100% of
            those screened, with identifiable substance misuse needs receive
            appropriate assessment within five working days. All workers in drug
            treatment services are trained in safeguarding issues and are competent
            in delivering the Common Assessment Framework. Operation Stay Safe
            and Safe Space are underway to target most vulnerable young people
            within the Community and to offer additional support where needed.
            These projects also target young people drinking in public places.

An increase in young people enjoying parks and open spaces during school holidays

           This will be reported on by NI 199 Children and young people's
            satisfaction with parks and play areas, data for this indicator will be
            published in the TellUs4 Survey in February 2010.

What actions are you planning to take to improve the outcome priority?

           Activity linked to the Find Your Talent initiative and targeted
            commissioning of PAYP activities will further enhance participation of the
            most hard to reach.
