The Department for Education and Skills and New Opportunities Fund joined forces with Youth Justice Board, Home Office and Department for Culture, Media and Sport, to combine existing Connexions Summer Plus and Splash schemes and run a new Positive Activities for Young People scheme. This was to give greater help and support to vulnerable young people.

The delivery of this programme focused mainly on a regional structure based around Government offices. The Government offices identified a range of lead organisations/providers (i.e. Youth Offending Teams, Connexions Services etc) at the local level and established a working partnership to oversee the programme in each region.

Funding available under this programme was allocated to the regional Government Offices.
