YPFN - 6 points for action

Young People Friendly Neighbourhoods was a successful national programme involving local communities in exploring local need and establishing long term solutions. In this summary, Kevin Ford outlines 6 points for action which arise from our learning:

·        Community led partnerships

·        A bedrock of community relationships

·        Commissioning by communities

·        Community investment over time

·        A community premium

·        One set of services

YPFN - our learning along the way


Over the 2 years of YPFN, the core team from FPM worked closely with the Groundwork areas to support local developments, build capacity and share expertise.


This summary of shared learning arises from monthly reports which reflected on progress and strengthened understanding of local circumstances, opportunities and difficulties in building community based long term youth provision.
