What is the proposed model?

Our vision is that every young person in Sheffield achieves their full potential, that they are active, informed, healthy and engaged, ready for life and work.
 
The model we propose consists of 7 key strands, described in detail in the Proposals section of the pack. The central proposal is the establishment of an Investing in Young People Partnership, bringing together all key partners to shape services strategically over the next five years. Further proposals are:
 
  • Commissioning a new Targeted Young People’s Support Service to be delivered by a Community Youth Team
  • Maintaining the young people’s One Stop Shop at Star House
  • Recommissioning Young People’s Voice and Influence work
  • Creation of a Successful Young People Team which will sit within the council’s Children, Young People and Families Service
  • Creation of a Young People’s Enrichment Fund to support the development of provision for young people.
  • Maintaining the Sexual Exploitation Service

What Happens Next

What will we do next following the consultation?

SCC will consider all submissions with a view to finalising its proposals for the re-organisation of our services to young people. The final proposals will be submitted to Cabinet for approval.

Subject to Cabinet approval, work would then begin to establish the Investing in Young People’s Partnership and the Young People’s Enrichment Fund. At the same time, formal consultations with staff and trade unions will commence in the negotiation of teams to be reorganised and relocated. Those commissions subject to open tender will be subject to the council’s standard procurement processes and timescales. It is anticipated that new service provision will be in contract and operational by the end of the year. SCC will consider all submissions with a view to finalising its proposals for the re-organisation of our services to young people. The final proposals will be submitted to Cabinet for approval.
