Your Choice – Tackling Youth Violence
February 19, 2013
Find out how Westminster City Council are tackling youth violence in Pimlico –
Saturday 23 February, 11am-4pm
Johnson’s Place, opposite Coleridge House, Churchill Gardens
- Drop in and speak to the council about what they are doing in your area
- Meet young people who are taking positive action to help others their age choose the right path
- Join in free sports and activities including Parkour and graffiti art.
The Your Choice programme allows young people to make a real choice – to take up the services on offer and become upstanding members of our community, or face some very serious consequences. The programme brings together teams from the council, the Metropolitan Police, the Probation Service and the voluntary sector, to support young people aged 10 to 24.
Your Choice programme includes:
- Support for young people to exit gangs and stop offending
- Help for young people to get into employment
- Working with schools to prevent young children getting into gang life
- Support for gang affected families.
If you are concerned a young person is involved or at risk of becoming involved in a gang or serious violence contact:
