Details of the full proposals were outlined within the report.
Resolved – (a) That the securing of the provision of activities and services to young people from private, voluntary, independent sector and community organisations funded through a grants application process be approved; (b) that the changes to the posts as detailed within appendix 3 to the report be approved, and (c) thatthe use of leasing, licensing or community asset transfer arrangements for organisations providing universal youth services be approved.
45 (45) REVIEW OF NORTH LINCOLNSHIRE YOUTH OFFENDING SERVICES – The Director of People submitted a report seeking approval for the proposed re-shaping of the Youth Offending Service (YOS) into a Case Management and Intervention Servicethat was able to meet statutory functions and the local challenge to sustain effective practice.
The report identified how the YOS has been developed with the use of both core and grant funding to build a service capable of meeting the above expectations and deliver these to a standard that met Inspection Judgements.

Details of the full proposal were outlined within the report.
Resolved – (a) That a redesigned youth offending service structure be established, and (b) that the changes to posts as detailed within the report be approved.
