We deliver a unique and carefully designed combination of services - using our dedicated outreach team and specialist mentors - which focus on conflict resolution and mediation. We aim to eradicate the growing levels of disrespect among young people on the peripherals of gang life by intercepting gang members and negotiating and reasoning with them in their environment. We seek to help them acknowledge the potential consequences of their actions and educate communities in gang culture.
