The Dumfries and Annan Antisocial Behaviour Reduction – Scoping Project is a short-term project funded by the Scottish Government Aspiring Communities Fund (ACF). The ACF grant is for Sacro to work alongside partners in Dumfries and Annan to undertake a Community Scoping Project in relation to the impact of antisocial behaviour by young people aged 16 to 21 on communities in the towns of Dumfries and Annan. 

The Project – supported by Dumfries and Galloway Community Planning partnership – will scope the need for services for young people aged 16-21 involved in antisocial behaviour and/or offending. These young people are often not engaged with or have failed to engage with other agencies and are in need of support.

When will this take place?

The Community Scoping project will run in Dumfries and Annan from December 2017 to March 2018, with the Community Engagement component of the consultation taking place during January and February 2018. This will involve engagement and consultation with representative groups and individuals in communities within Dumfries and Annan, along with a number of open events that will be advertised.

What Next!

It is planned that the information and learning from the Scoping Project will provide an opportunity for local groups, residents and partners to work with Sacro on a Stage 2 grant funding submission to the Aspiring Communities Fund to support the development of services to support young people. Through the development and delivery of services to these targeted young people it is hoped to reduce the level of antisocial behaviour and offending by young people in this age range and contribute to the development of more inclusive and responsive communities.
