Blair backs after-school clubs

1st November 2002 at 00:00
TONY Blair is backing a campaign to set up 3,000 after-school clubs for young people. The clubs for 11 to 16-year-olds aim to provide a safe place for them to gather and to prevent a drift into crime. Research carried out for the launch of the Kids' Club Network's Make Space campaign found half the parents questioned did not know where their teenage children were and who they were with after school. Seven out of 10 young people said the potential to commit crime was increased by not having enough to do when school ends.
