In January 2019, Nottinghamshire Police launched a pilot project named ‘Fast tracking of Vulnerable Young people into the VPC’, working in partnership with the National VPC. There are currently 7 senior cadet units and 5 junior cadet units in Nottinghamshire. This pioneering project aimed to trial a new model for engaging vulnerable young people into the VPC programme. This initial evaluation provides an independent assessment of the programme, documenting progress and identifying developmental areas. The approach to involved: - Desktop analysis of quantitative data provided to IPSCJ by Nottinghamshire Police, in respect of the operation and delivery of the pilot project; - Interviews with strategic stakeholders and operational and delivery leads; and - Interviews/focus groups with Cadets involved in the programme.
