Youth Fund and Rapid Response Fund - 2021 Consultation

This consultation has now ended.

This consultation ran from 20/05/2021 to 14/06/2021.


Dear Sir/Madam

Thank you for sharing your views and helping to shape a new model of  youth provision for young people in Newcastle.

Thanks to your involvement we have an ambitious proposal on the future of youth services with and for young people in Newcastle. We are pleased that it builds on engagement and consultation feedback, aligns with locality working, builds relationships and promotes collaboration and critically, supports young people to have a direct say in the city post COVID-19.

The model is in two parts:

 A Youth Fund – to invest in young person led activity in each of four localities across the city.

 A Rapid Response Fund – to invest in short-term interventions in response to escalation of youth related issues e.g. significant increase in youth ASB in an identified hotspot.

The service is for young people between the ages of 13 and 19 and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) up to the age of 25 living in Newcastle.

The overall aim is to develop activities with young people that promote personal and social development, improve health outcomes, reduce risk-taking behaviour, and reduce youth anti-social behaviour (ASB).

Please find attached the Integrated Impact Assessment which has been updated to reflect issues which arose from the consultation feedback, in particular sections B4 and C7.

If you have any question or would like to know more please contact Shamsun Choudhury at or Jo Taylor at
