£10m for family support programmes to prevent violence

Local authorities have been urged to apply for a £10m fund to find out how family support can help prevent violence.

The Youth Endowment Fund (YEF) and Comic Relief have opened applications to the programme which will invest in up to 10 projects to learn more about how early investment in family support programmes can prevent children and young people becoming involved in violence.

The funding will focus on parenting programme, family therapy interventions, programmes to reduce parental conflict and domestic abuse interventions.

Samir Patel, chief executive of Comic Relief, said: 'Early intervention with families who need support can have a dramatic effect on the lives of young people. We’re really excited that this programme has been co-designed with young people, they have used their experiences and knowledge and identified the services they would like to see delivered, alongside advice from expert key workers.

'Everyone deserves the best start in life and I hope these new programmes and outreach services will help transform the lives of thousands of people.'
