RYOGENS, the Reducing Youth Offending Generic Solution National Project, has today unveiled its outputs and announced the successful completion of the first phase of trials.
The project, a partnership between Lewisham and Tower Hamlets London Boroughs and Warwickshire County Council, has developed tools and procedures to enable agencies to share concerns on children and adolescents to protect those at risk and prevent youth crime
In a statement issued today, Local eGovernment Minister Phil Hope praised the project's work and commented:
"The RYOGENS project is a typical example of what Local eGovernment can achieve - using technology to make a difference to peoples' lives. It is our challenge over the coming months to promote this message to all local authorities and the general public since they will be the customers benefiting from improved services.
"The work that RYOGENS does pulls together work that is already carried out a local level, but is more effective with less chance of vulnerable children falling through the net."
