  What is an LCN?  

 

Local Community Networks (LCNs) are made up of groups of local parish and town councils. LCNs are important to improve the local community for everyone who lives within them. LCNs will include city, town and parish councils, voluntary groups, the NHS, schools, the police, residents and other interested parties. Somerset Council is currently shaping how LCNs will work through three LCN pilot areas; Exmoor, Frome and SES.

  What are the objectives of the feasibility study?  

 

  • Understand the current availability and gaps in Universal Youth Work Provision in a defined area

  • Understand key communities in a defined area in terms of their aspirations and their needs of Youth Work support for their young people

  • Assess the viability and options for increasing Universal Youth Provision in the defined area, including options for funding and sustainability

  • Create recommendations on how to develop sustainable universal youth work offers in LCN areas

 

The study will result in a report and a presentation to outline the opportunities and challenges to develop more universal youth work in the local communities that are part of the LCN.
