101 is a single non-emergency number provided by police and local councils to deal
with community safety issues, including certain non-emergency crime, policing and
anti-social behaviour. Initially piloted in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, Cardiff,
Sheffield, Northumberland and Tyne and Wear and Leicester City and Rutland. Roll-out
to other areas has been delayed pending evaluation of the pilots.
Bursaries of £1,200 a year for around 12,000 vulnerable young people, made up of children
in care, care leavers and those on income support (teenage parents, young people with
severe disabilities, teenagers living away from their parents and young people whose
parents have died). Schools, colleges and training providers will then be able to
award discretionary bursaries to students who face genuine financial barriers to staying
on in education and training to help with costs such as transport, food or equipment.
