Youth violence and knife crime prevention
Youth violence prevention - Support for young people
The Merseyside Violence Reduction Partnership is funding an initiative aimed at reducing violent crime amongst young people.
Merseyside Youth Association (MYA), Young Persons Advisory Service (YPAS) and ADDvanced Solutions Community Network are engaging with young people who have been affected by or involved with violence.
They will provide support to help them recover, help them to feel safe, and enable them to make connections with agencies who can help them.
The offer is made up of mentoring, therapeutic support, coaching and training.
Positive Futures is a charitable organisation based in North Liverpool. It works with young people aged 8 to 24 to access support, guidance and opportunities for self-development.
Its Targeted Support team works with young people on a one to one basis to help them overcome a wide range of issues or challenges such as bereavement, anger management, self-esteem, life skills and confidence building.
