Tackling Youth Violence

What should statutory and other organisations be doing to prevent the escalation of violent crime?

Finding solutions to ending Youth violence in the UK continues to challenge society; the police; regulators and the government, families and young people. As a complex phenomenon, it manifests itself in many ways; adverse childhood experiences, drug trafficking, county lines, gangs, knife and gun crimes and even prostitution. Vulnerable children are increasingly becoming victims, who are targeted and groomed to act as “couriers” across what is known as “county lines”. As the demand for drugs increases across the country, young people, victims of coercion, once apprehended become young offenders.

The causes of youth violence, are many, the landscape is complex at times filled with stereotypes and misperceptions. There are facts and figures which support approaches to prevent and reduce young people’s involvement in crime. However, a need to find effective and coordinated approaches to deal with the issue is in the interest of all that is involved and impacted.

Violent youth crime is a phenomenon that requires the government to lead and take responsibility, ensuring direction, commitment and practical multi-agency working and engagement. Do statutory and other organisations deliver services that reduce or prevent the escalation of violent crime? How are services providing hope and creating opportunities for young people to be aspirational and successful in Britain today?

This one-day conference will bring together a range of representatives of groups and organisations that deal with this challenging topic such as Youth Services, Violence reduction units, front line police, crime commissioners, prison staff, former gang members, teachers, carers and policy makers.

Our guest speakers and presenters will address a range of topics that will benefit our delegates who will be able to explore and learn about the latest on:
Best practice in early intervention and prevention strategies
Need for policy changes
Myths surrounding gangs and street culture
Multi-Agency Approach
Role of Police Frontline workers and Commissioners in tackling gang violence


Updates on latest perspectives will be supported by relevant evidence, practical approaches and examples such as:
Current situation on Gang-related violence
Grooming- and how to recognise early signs of risk in every day settings
Current interventions programs
The role of the school in addressing youth crime


This conference will stimulate thought; provide knowledge and answers to a wide range of participants such as:
Police frontline workers
MP's
Prison Staff
Case managers
Psychologists
Psychiatrists
Counsellors
Educators
Mental health professionals
