21. To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps she is taking to further engage local communities in initiatives to divert young people from antisocial or criminal behaviour. (188135)

The Government funds various initiatives, for instance Positive Futures and Positive Activities for Young People, which exist to divert young people from a number of negative outcomes, including becoming involved in crime and antisocial behaviour. Local authorities have discretion over how they use funding to deliver projects most appropriate for both their young people and their local communities.
