Making communities safer and fairer for young people

HELPING YOUNG PEOPLE
LIVE A LIFE FREE OF VIOLENCE

We’re a group of 16 to 25-year-olds who want to help young people live a life free from violence. Across England and Wales, we’re bringing young people aged 10 to 20 together, listening to what they have to say and turning what we learn into action.
