Youth Violence is one of our society’s most pressing issues and in this free seminar we will hear from Agencia, who has brought together some of the UK’s most innovative and forward-thinking organisations to lead pioneering collaborative impact work in the fight against the unfolding youth violence crisis. 

Helen will explain how taking a collective impact approach moves away from the traditional, more isolated ways that service organisations attempt to solve problems in communities, and the conditions required for effective place-based transformation. 

Keith will cover the scale of the youth violence problem, how the pandemic only worsened a pre-existing emergency and what needs to change to end this crisis and help our young people thrive.

Marcus and Robin will share what lessons we have learned from working with young people, how youth violence impacts other issues such as age, gender, race, etc. and how taking a collective impact approach can contribute to the transformational change that is needed.  ​​​​​​​
