Raising Your Game’s second phase launched with an event
and new-look newsletter
Raising Your Game launched its second phase, which sees the project shift its focus to young people with a learning disability or communication difficulty at risk of offending.
Held in Leeds in November, the event showed what Raising Your Game can offer youth and criminal justice organisations.
Over 70 people heard from young people about their experiences with the police and Raising Your Game, and their hopes for the future. Guests included Richard Bradshaw, director of the Department of Health’s Offender Health programme, and Vernon Francis, chief inspector at West Yorkshire Police’s City and Holbeck Division.
The change is also reflected in a new-look newsletter, which was launched in January and tackles the media’s perception of young people after last summer’s riots.
Tim Loughton from the Department of Education has a read of the new look newsletter:
