This year's winner - Lindsey Frew
In the last two years Lindsay Frew was successful in obtaining funding from LANPAC to run the successful “Challenge It, Change It” initiative,
which was run in partnership with HM Prison Service Preston and identified young people aged 13-20 who were on the periphery of crime and
offered them an alternative.
They were all taken to Preston Prison and given a tour of the prison including the cells and met prisoner
diversity representatives who addressed offending behaviour and the consequences of crime. Other subjects included drug and alcohol
misuse, diversity issues, hate crime, bullying and anti-social behaviour etc.
Evaluation on 115 young people who attended showed that 3 months after the visits the offences committed had dropped
from 34% to 2% and in an 18 month period youth referral forms issued had dropped from 55% to 15%.
LANPAC funding paid for the hire of transport when schools did not have their own minibus.
