Youth Violence in London
Published: 13 Nov 2018
We would like to acknowledge the tragic deaths of the young people who have recently been victims of violence on the streets of south London. This is a difficult and challenging time for all those affected. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of those who have died or been hurt.
If you are worried or concerned about a child or young person who might be affected by gang activity, youth violence or bullying, we can help signpost you to the appropriate support.
We offer one to one support for children aged 8-13 who are considered vulnerable as a result of their past experiences or current circumstances. We also currently offer preventative school group programmes in Lambeth to help children navigate their choices, rights and responsibilities, and to aim to increase their emotional wellbeing.
We offer one to one support and group work programmes for parents and carers to help them support their child’s emotional and social development, or to aid recovery from trauma.
If you would like to talk to someone please phone us on 0207 820 7910 to speak in confidence to a worker.
