We work in partnership with young people and practitioners to understand and address the drivers of youth violence.

Our vision is to create a safer Scotland, where children and young people feel loved, safe and respected, enabling them to realise their full potential. We want everyone to live in communities that are inclusive, empowered, resilient and safe. We want everyone’s human rights to be respected, protected and fulfilled, allowing a life free from discrimination.

Our aim is to inspire youth workers and practitioners working with young people to empower those who may be at risk of youth violence to choose a better path. We do this through:

• A youth work, youth-led and public health approach

• Developing programmes that support practitioners to discuss and educate young people on offensive weapons and youth violence, empowering them to make more positive, informed choices

Deliver training to created and upskill pro-social practitioners

• Advocating for a rights-based and trauma-informed approach to be taken
