Tender for the Provision of ‘The Edges’ Project
(Edge of Care Intervention Service (EDGES))
The objective of this procurement is:-
To provide an evidence informed, specialist ‘earlier intervention’ service for young people primarily between the ages of 13 – 17, who are on the ‘edge of care’ , custody and / or education.
These young people are coming to the regular attention of the police for non-offence related behaviour, and their attendance or behaviour in education indicates a need for intervention. They are also likely to be at risk of homelessness in later adolescence and to feature in the Not in Employment, Education or Training, (NEETS) population post compulsory school education.
