The Role of Creative Practice to Support Young People at Risk of Offending

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

The era of austerity sparked by the 2008 global financial crash has seen a UK wide reduction in public spending, with local authority funding in Scotland having “fallen in real terms by 9.6 per cent between 2010/11 and 2018/19” (The Audit Commission, 2018 p. 10). In light of this and other challenges, local authorities are urged to take action on the use of funds, seeking creative ways of responding to the needs of their constituents (Christie, 2011). Imaginative use of unpaid work and other activities is one way of doing so, in addition to inventive, flexible application of Movement Restriction Conditions. The use of arts can also provide a way to support young people involved in crime (Vallance, 2017). Some local authorities have developed creative services by accessing additional funding via the CashBack for Creativity schemes.
