About the Event

Empowering Futures: Preventing Youth Violence in the UK

In recent years, youth violence, particularly knife crime, has become one of the most pressing issues confronting the United Kingdom. A surge in violent incidents amongst young people not only devastates families but also threatens the very fabric of our communities. In London alone, the number of knife crime offences recorded in 2019 was over 15,000, the highest since data collection began. Such incidents not only threaten the lives of our youth but hinder them from realizing their full potential and put them at risk of incarceration. More disturbingly, a significant portion of those involved are under 18, highlighting the urgent need for systemic intervention.  

We are convening "Empowering Futures", a comprehensive workshop in London, aimed at devising strategies to prevent youth violence and provide avenues for young individuals to nurture their skills, aspirations, and lead a life free from the implications of crime.  This workshop seeks the collaboration of parents, families, educators, volunteer groups, government representatives, and policy makers, reflecting a holistic approach to tackle the root causes of such crimes.

The goal is to devise a road map for sustainable solutions and reshaping the futures of our young people. This workshop will host panels of renowned experts to discuss the underlying causes of youth violence and potential preventative measures. We will also hear directly from individuals affected by this violence and those who have successfully reformed and rebuilt their lives. Their testimonies promise to shed light on the tangible implications of violence and the profound power of resilience and change. Participants will have the unique opportunity to engage in sessions led by panels of experts who possess in-depth knowledge of youth violence and its impact on communities. Join us in shaping this vision, addressing challenges, and co-creating a safer, promising future for our youth.
