Serious Youth Violence Meeting

12 Nov 2019
Attlee Centre, 5 Thrawl Street, London E1 6RT

Members looked at the range of data available to funders to help inform where and what to fund, linked to the public health model of tackling violence, including:

  • Joe Heywood from the Violence Reduction Unit at City Hall presented on their work to bring together crime data, public perceptions data, public health data, indices of deprivation and other factors to identify communities most at risk of violence, and how this data can be used by funders to invest effectively
  • Sara Parsonage from Social Finance presented key insights from data across early-help, schools and social services in order to establish a holistic view of children who are at risk of exclusion and the potential links to wider vulnerabilities
  • Sarah Willis (chair) from Hyde-Housing will be providing an overview of the “Estate of Mine” programme that is being developed by Hyde and partners using the public health model of tackling violence, share learning about how this work is developing in Lambeth, and discuss how the data can inform the expansion of programmes like this tackling the issues in place – with time for question and discussion.
