Gang Training

Gang Culture Awareness & Harm Reduction

The latest figures suggest there are 600 potential county lines; the fight against gangs exploiting children to deal drugs is likely to last a generation. It is estimated that c.28,000 children were in street gangs in England and Wales between March 2016-18. In this programme, we give you techniques to create awareness around all elements of gang culture. Each course encourages professionals to take on these challenges and create effective and interactive interventions, lessons, sessions and workshops that staff and young people will enjoy. It is important to reach young people as early as possible in the grooming process or, ideally, before they come into contact with gang recruiters.

Our Training

About Our Training

Our courses draw on the insights of young people, families and professionals that we work with every year. We keep things practical by sharing experiences, giving practical tips and advice, sharing good practice, and exploring ideas through discussion and group work. We value discussion and run courses in a relaxed and supportive way so you can build confidence in your new skills and reflect on your development. We bring professionals from different disciplines together in one place to share knowledge and learn about young people’s mental health in different settings. Training empowers professionals to take on sessions and interventions that they may have previously found awkward or out of their skill’s zone. Each course provides not only up-to-date information, they also encourage professionals to take on these challenges and create effective and interactive interventions, lessons, sessions and workshops that staff and young people will enjoy.
