Ever wondered how much of an impact our Youth Zones have on their local community?
We recently caught up with PCSO Robert Smith who patrols the Harpurhey area of Manchester – in particularly around The Factory Youth Zone.
Rob has been working around the area of Harpurhey for 8 years and in that time he states that he has seen Anti-Social-Behaviour (ASB) levels drop dramatically since The Factory has been in existence.
Watch the video interview with Rob below and hear how the Factory went about tackling the problem of ASB in the local community, the reaction of the local residents and the overall impact the Youth Zone has had within the area.
