To date 244 young people have started on the GLA ESF Youth Programme. The programme is currently not delivering to target which is positive as it is largely due to the overall decline of young people entering custody. The targets are currently being reviewed by delivery partners. We will be able to advise how many young people will be able to be supported by the project once the revised targets have been considered by the GLA Investment Programme Board in December 2013.
