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. 

Find out more about this initiative on the Merseyside Youth Association website.
