The Keighley Choices programme targeted the voluntary and community sector to support their involvement in preventing and reducing substance misuse and related offending by vulnerable young people aged 10-19 years. This evaluation examines the extent to which Keighley Choices increased the capacity of local organisations to identify and respond appropriately to children and young people at risk of substance misuse and/or offending.

Keighley Choices provided Funding to 11 national voluntary sector organisations for expansion on proven approaches and development of innovative and new ways of working to deliver more effective solutions for local communities.Young people and families were offered a targeted, tailor-made package of support designed to reduce the risk factors, and promote the counter-risk factors, linked to offending and substance misuse. Barnardo's undertook both an outcomes based and process evaluation of the Choices programme. The outcomes evaluation investigated whether Keighley Choices reduced the risk of occurrence or reoccurrence of substance misuse and/or offending of young people on the edge of statutory intervention. A process evaluation focused on whether Keighley Choices increased the capacity of local organisations to identify and respond appropriately to children and young people at risk of substance misuse and/or offending.
