How is REBOOT funded?
In the first year (2019/20), REBOOT was funded through the Home Office Early Intervention Fund.
This fund provided money to Police and Crime Commissioners who were successful in submitting partnership bids for programmes set up to prevent and tackle serious violence.
The second year of the project (2020/21) has been funded through the police element of council tax, known as the precept.
The youth coaches at Stage Two of the programme also have access to an enabling fund in order to ensure that they are able to meet the young person’s needs. This fund enables the young person to establish new, healthier peer/friendship groups within already established sports/activities in their local communities.
