Intervention and Diversion Services
One of the recommendations, announced in March 2019, was for the PCC to set aside a portion of his annual commissioning budget for early intervention and diversion, to help youngsters make good choices about their futures. This fund supports activities such as, awareness campaigns, prevention initiatives, rehabilitation projects, and diversionary activities. Ultimately, the PCC wants to play a part in helping protect some of our most vulnerable people from the most violent.
