Communications News: Young apprentices

Crime Concern in the Midlands produced a report on young victims of crime last week to draw attention to its first youth apprentice scheme. The scheme, run in partnership with Norwich Union, involves four 16-25-year-old apprentices working with young people in Leicester and Nottingham in an attempt to combat some of the frustrations and pressures that lead to crime. The crime survey showed that 11-16-year-olds are most concerned about knife culture and 20 per cent admitted to knowing someone aged under 16 who carries a knife. The charity wrote to MPs in Leicester and Nottingham last week to inform them about the scheme. Apprentices were recruited through postcards placed in bars, cafes and nightclubs, after newspaper ads had failed. They will be based in established youth inclusion projects run by Crime Concern.
