We recognise that tackling serious youth violence is not going to be achieved by professional services alone. Our young people need all of us in the community to understand the risks they are facing so we can support them better
Thanks to funding from Haringey's Safer Neighbourhood Board we are able to run a series of online training and debate sessions for local residents.
These events are open to all residents. You do not need to work or volunteer working with young people. You could be a parent, a sibling, a member of neighbourhood watch or just a member of the community who is concerned about the growth in serious youth violence.
Confidentiality: We will not share your details with any third party or funder. You are welcome to attend with your camera off and name changed. This is your space you discuss these issues.
