Catalyst is headline sponsor at the Youth Justice Convention

Catalyst is the headline sponsor at the Youth Justice Convention on the 3-4 December at the NEC, Birmingham.

Our customer, the London Borough of Hillingdon is hosting a seminar session at the event on the 3 December, titled, ‘Tackling criminal exploitation early through the use of analytics’.

Catalyst was introduced to the London Borough of Hillingdon by Avon and Somerset Police as a specialist in combining data from multiple public sector agencies. Hillingdon Youth Offending Service had started to capture a lot of soft and hard intelligence data but were unsure of how to tie this together to deliver insights. They engaged Catalyst to collaborate with them on their initiative: Project Axis.

Project Axis is an award-winning, MOPAC-endorsed state-of-the-art programme that supports the early identification of young people at risk of criminal exploitation. By centrally collating, analysing and sharing data across agencies, it informs the wider local authority and partnership response. Project Axis disrupts county line activity and coordinated drug operations. It enables Hillingdon to work closely with the police on CSE operations, allows triangulation of data and delivers targeted intervention and diversion exactly where it is needed. It is quickly gaining traction and becoming a beacon of good practice for local authorities, the Metropolitan Police and other police forces.

Project Axis has effectively reshaped Hillingdon’s adolescent agenda and strategy. Read more about our work with Hillingdon.
