Event description

Description

This session is NOT designed to tell you how to parent, we understand all children are different and despite their backgrounds, many fall into crime, violence and gangs.

We aim to raise your awareness of current trends in serious youth violence and gangs, signs to look out for, how drug gangs operate, what to do in a crisis and personal testimony.

This session will open your eyes to the hidden truths behind the general stereotypes we all too often hear and see on the news. Personal testimony will bring the real life element to this session, ensuring you leave feeling confident to spot signs and protect your children from the perils of drug dealing, knife crime and gangs.

Gavin McKenna is the Founder of 'Reach Every Generation LTD'. Gavin has journeyed from gang membership in London to born again Christian, using his past life experiences to set about influencing societal change. Gavin has quickly established himself as a leading figure in combatting gang culture.
