remember 'employability'... How we give local area committees more say in the delivery of local youth services is a key transformational question for the County Council. Our approach will be to involve local committees much more in planning for 2010-2011, based on a needs profile of their local area. This profile will be based on local data, such as volume of youth crime, anti-social behaviour, poverty and deprivation, total numbers of young people living in the area, teenage conception or levels of young people not in education, employment or training. We will consider the needs of vulnerable specific groups such as gay young people, young people from ethnic minorities, travellers and new arrivals to the UK. Local intelligence from partner agencies and, crucially, elected members will also help paint the picture of need in a borough or district. We will also assess demand from young people for services. We plan to develop a new working model for 2011-2012 which will present a menu of ‘products’ or services; which will be delivered by the County Council in partnership with the voluntary, community and faith sector. To compliment our duty to deliver statutory local services, local Committees will be able to ‘buy’ products from the menu that might include detached youth work, centre based work, personal development, accredited programmes like Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, group work, targeted work with young people, arts, leisure, IT, music based youth work and so on. These products will be aligned to a countywide strategy for young people that contributes to a wider vision for Surrey. Services will also meet defined standards of quality and be contract managed through a framework agreement between providers and SCC.
