star this property answer text <p>As part of the Government’s ambitious 25 Year Environment Plan (YEP), we are providing £5.7 million to support the existing Northern Forest Partnership, with Community Forests and The Woodland Trust to accelerate and further develop the Northern Forest. This will help plant at least 1.8 million new trees in the Northern Forest by 2022. A minimum of 1 million of these trees are being delivered through the Partnership Innovation Fund element of our investment. Through this approach we are working closely with the Northern Forest Partnership to consider, develop and test innovative approaches and policies from the 25 YEP such as Forestry Investment Zones, natural capital, carbon off-setting and green investment financing models.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is also working with the Northern Forest Partnership to increase planting rates, through joint working of Defra Group bodies like the Forestry Commission (FC), with the Partnership signposting land managers to existing FC funding.</p><p> </p><p>This approach will ensure trees are planted now and kick-start the development of the Northern Forest, helping the Partnership to realise their longer-term vision of 50 million trees over the next 25 years.</p>

star this property answer text <p>This Government is committed to helping families into work, as the best route out of poverty. We are also supporting over 1 million children with free school meals, investing up to £26 million in school breakfast clubs, providing approximately 2.3 million children aged 4-6 with a portion of fresh fruit or vegetables each day at school, and, through the Healthy Start Programme, hundreds of thousands of low income families benefit from vouchers which can be redeemed against fruit, vegetables, milk and infant formula. In 2019/20, the government will be spending more than £95 billion a year on working-age benefits. The new set of food insecurity questions introduced into the existing Family Resources Survey from April will build a better understanding of household food needs, to help ensure we’re targeting support to those most in need.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In April 2018, the Government published the Serious Violence Strategy which sets out a comprehensive set of 61 commitments and actions we are taking to tackle violent crime. This includes launching a £22m Early Intervention Youth Fund, which is already supporting 29 projects in England and Wales; a national knife crime media campaign: #knife free; a new National County Lines Coordination Centre and the Offensive Weapons Bill, which will strengthen legislation on firearms, knives and corrosive substances. <br>On 2 October 2018, the Home Secretary announced further important measures including a consultation on new legal duty to support a multi-agency approach to preventing and tackling serious violence, a new long term £200 million Youth Endowment Fund and an Independent Review of Drug Misuse.</p><p>Most recently, on 13 March, the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced an additional £100 million of funding for serious violence in 2019/20. This funding will directly support the police’s immediate response to the rise in serious knife crime, as well as supporting investment in Violence Reduction Units, which will bring together a range of agencies including health, education, social services and others to develop a multi-agency approach to preventing serious violence altogether. It is important that we recognise that greater law enforcement on its own will not reduce serious violence and that we must continue to focus on prevention.</p><p>With specific reference to Barnsley and the Sheffield City Region, we have awarded almost £1.25m from the Early Intervention Youth Fund to the Police and Crime Commissioner for South Yorkshire in support of two projects, one of which is working in Barnsley and the other in Sheffield. In addition, alongside all other police forces in England and Wales, South Yorkshire Police took part in a national week of action to tackle knife crime, called Operation Sceptre, from 11-18 March 2019.</p>

star this property answer text <p>On 9 April 2018, the Government published the Serious Violence Strategy to set out the action it is taking to address serious violence and in particular the recent increases in knife crime, gun crime and homicide. The Strategy is taking a multi-strand approach. Law enforcement is very important, but it also depends on partnerships across a number of sectors, such as education, health, social services, housing, youth services, victim services and others.</p><p>Our analysis highlights that a major factor behind the recent increases in serious violence is changes in the drugs markets. The strategy says that law enforcement plays a vital role in tackling these offences, but big shifts in crime tend to be driven by factors outside the police’s control such as drug market changes.</p><p>Police have the resources they need to carry out their vital work. In 2017, the Policing Minister visited and spoke to every police force in England and Wales about the demands on policing. That is why we have provided a strong and comprehensive funding settlement that will increase funding by £460m from 2018/19, including £280m of direct funding raised through increases in Council Tax precept which police forces can spend locally. Decisions about frontline policing, and how resources are best deployed, are for Chief Constables and democratically accountable Police and Crime Commissioners.</p><p>The strategy sets out action that is being taken to address knife crime. This includes the national knife crime media campaign, #knifefree, to raise awareness of the consequences of knife crime among young people and to encourage them to take up positive activities. We will continue to encourage police forces in England and Wales to undertake a series of coordinated national weeks of action to tackle knife crime under Operation Sceptre. We also announced up to £1million for a new round of the anti-knife crime Community Fund on 18 May which will invite bids for funding from community groups to tackle knife crime.</p>
