Taking place a year on from the publication of the Independent Review into the Government’s Ending Gang and Youth Violence Programme, and 18 months on from the release of the Modern Crime Prevention Strategy, this event will provide an opportunity to discuss and debate the progress of the Ending Gang and Youth Violence Programme, priorities for early intervention to end exploitation and protect vulnerable individuals, next steps for making positive interventions and highlighting pathways out of crime and developing a multi-agency response to gang violence and associated crime.
Early Intervention and Ending Exploitation
Progress made since the publication of Ending Gang Violence and Exploitation; understanding the underlying social issues and how gang violence and exploitation is evolving; developing a preventative model; and priorities for improving partnership working and a multi-agency approach.
Helping People Turn Around Their Lives
Information sharing and improving targeted interventions; supporting care leavers in transition and other vulnerable individuals; the role of schools and engagement with education; developing mentoring schemes; and next steps for measuring success
Developing an Effective and Appropriate Criminal Justice Response
Tackling county lines and ensuring disruption from police doesn’t just push gangs to another locality; analysing the impact of gang injunctions; priorities for bridging the funding gap and the need for resources; and assessing the effectiveness of national gangs policy.
