Youth Unity develops projects, workshops and events that bring different groups from across the capital together to build cohesive and consistent grass roots approach to tackling serious youth violence. We create positive alternatives for young people by embracing the saying, ’it takes a village to raise a child’ by creating ways to communicate with each other and the public and ensure that young people know how to access support wherever they are.
There are children being injured or killed by other children every day. There are many organisations working on the streets and in the communities, that deal with these issues and the underlying causes every day. However, they are often working in isolation.
However, we need to change the tone of the conversation and also focus on the positive. Whilst ensuring that the issues are raised and dealt with strategically, we need to provide young people with a platform, parents with support and skills and communities with opportunities.
By working together, we can do this!
