Development of the Mayor’s strategy to tackle serious youth violence
A review of progress on delivering the Mayor's Time for Action programmes designed to tackle serious youth violence.
In November 2008 the Mayor produced his Time for Action proposals designed to tackle serious youth violence.
This report assesses progress made to date and the future prospects for the programmes that make up Time for Action: Project Daedalus; Project Brodie; Mayor’s Scholars; Project Titan and; Project Oracle
The report found uneven progress on the delivery of the Mayor’s five core intervention programmes . While some projects are operational others have been slow to get going and have yet to fully prove their worth.
The report focuses on three particular areas where the Mayor has intervened and significant GLA resources have been expended: to support offender rehabilitation, to support looked after children and to support mentoring of young black boys.
