Violence Affecting Young People Network

20 Jul 2021

Chaired by Sarah Willis, (Head of Strategic Partnerships & National Delivery, Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing), Chris Murray (CEO, Young Brent Foundation), spoke at our most recent Violence Affecting Young People meeting about the YBF's approach to working with young people and a new programme – One Flow One Brent (OFOB). The OFOB programme enables young people and communities to lead and develop solutions to tackling violence. The programme runs across three estates and is delivered in partnership with three housing associations.

Darwin Bernardo (Community Engagement Lead, Mayor of London’s Violence Reduction Unit) also shared his reflections on setting up VRU Young People`s Action Group. The Group is set up to work with the VRU to reduce and stabilise violence across London, increase feelings of safety and promote opportunities for young Londoners.
