A £200m government fund to tackle rising levels of serious youth violence by supporting projects that help vulnerable children aged between 10 and 14, has opened to bids.

Cuts to children's services budgets for family support and youth work represent a "false economy", simply leading to greater pressure on safeguarding provision, Ofsted has warned.

Out-of-school settings will be asked to abide by a voluntary code of practice as part of government plans to improve safeguarding of children.

Children will be recruited as young inspectors as part of a government initiative to give them a say over how national youth initiatives are run.

The Home Office has announced funding worth £17.7m over two years to 29 projects working to divert children and young people away from violent crime in England and Wales.
