About this report

The issue of gang and youth violence has increasingly become a problem within some of the major cities across the United Kingdom. As figures related to knife and gun related violence soar in cities such as London, Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool, academics, youth work practitioners and politicians alike are seeking answers to explain why in recent times violence is on the rise. What is critical at present is to identify which interventions are appropriate to engage in the issue with the aim of addressing it, reducing harm in the short term and prevention in the longer term. Therefore, this report will explore and highlight the need for youth work as a one of the appropriate responses to youth criminality.
