Swift Read: Early Intervention for Reducing Organised Crime – Extending the scheme


First launched in Glasgow in 2013, the Serious Organised Crime Early Intervention Service from charity Action for Children secured £4.6 million in National Lottery funding in late 2019 to extend the scheme to Edinburgh, Newcastle and Cardiff over a three year period. Action for Children with police, crime and council partners will work with families and schools in communities to target vulnerable young people on the cusp of serious organised crime such as drug supply and distribution, money laundering, stealing to order and illegal enforcement.
