The Burnley Neighbourhood Policing team have worked closely with Participation Works for many years and we have built a strong relationship. We work closely with them to improve relationships with young people within the community and I believe that joint approach to engagement has been key to reducing anti-social behaviour in some of our key locations. Over the last 3 years we have had to endure the challenges throughout Covid and as a result we saw youth-related anti-social behaviour increase for a variety of reasons. We remained in regular contact with Lynne and Participation Works through out this period and when restrictions were eased, we were ready to pick up the targeted youth work and help the young people. The deployment of the Youth Bus on Burnley town centre over the last 12 months has been instrumental in reducing the anti-social behaviour which had increased significantly post-Covid restrictions. I sincerely believe that Lynne and her team have played a massive role in this which has helped reduce demand on the police but more importantly, improved the quality of life for our community. I know from speaking to Lynne regularly that she is always looking to improve her service and I am happy to support this in any way I can.
