A pioneering project to steer young people away from crime and improve their lives is underway in Salford.
As part of its ongoing transformation journey, GMFRS worked closely with Greater Manchester Police and Salford City Council to bring a new approach to the way local youngsters and their families in Salford are supported.
The Salford Integrated Prevention Hub (SIPH) came after GMFRS and its partners were successful in securing Government funding of £0.49m to improve youth systems and available services.
The funding was complemented by over £0.5m of support through the use of existing staff from the three partners.
Across Salford there are four hubs, where teams made up of existing staff and new recruits from a range of backgrounds are working from. The hubs are located at Eccles Fire Station, Swinton Police Station, Little Hulton Children’s Centre and The Beacon Centre in Charlestown.
Each of the four teams deliver multi-agency services aimed at providing a more co-ordinated and integrated approach to the way the three organisations previously worked with young people and their families.
