Event description

Description

Croydon Youth Summit aims to empower, support and transform the lives of young people and their families. The current state of our community can not go on any longer and it’s time we take effective action. Youth violence has been on the rise in London, with over 50 young people having lost their lives due to knife crime since January 2018.

Our question is “what are we doing about this bloodshed and how can we bring it to a close.”

Many families have been broken, and consequently are living in heart break with fear of the unknown everyday. We believe as Croydon Community we must stand together to support and strengthen these families as well as the generations to come.

The Croydon Youth Summit organised by the Croydon BME Forum, Croydon Council and 20 young people and community supporters, are working together to involve our young people and hear their much needed opinions on the situations occurring.

Also with the help of other professionals who can provide the necessary support needed for our young people who are at risk of youth violence, we hope to create an event where a change in the community will be foreseeable.
