On Track is an evidence-based preventative programme that adopts a community approach to
tackling crime. Initially set up as part of the Home Office Crime Reduction Programme, it aims to
reduce crime by targeting early interventions (early in terms of ‘the problem’ and years) at the risk
factors known to be associated with crime and anti-social behaviour. Local On Track partnerships
have been established and funded to provide multiple interventions known from the evidence
base to aid families and children aged four to12 years at risk.
The programme was established in 2000 and has been introduced in 24 local authority areas with
high levels of deprivation and crime. Whilst it has been slower to achieve planned delivery than
originally expected, programme implementation has been successful and recent evidence
suggests that all projects are now established and delivering interventions.
Aims of this report:
An integral part of the programme is its multi-tier evaluation drawing upon the findings of regional
and national evaluation teams. This report focuses upon emerging findings in stages 1 and 2 of
the process evaluation surrounding programme and project implementation during the first 18
months. It identifies effective approaches in early prevention with children and families and the
factors contributing to successful and effective delivery of interventions.
This summary has two key aims:
1. To identify key lessons learnt about the implementation and set-up of large national
programmes such as On Track.
2. To highlight key factors – both nationally and locally - that have a positive or negative impact
on delivery of large-scale programmes.|
