The second Anti-violence Forum focusing on Gun & Knife Crime will be held by Lambeth Councillors this Saturday, 20th April 2019 from 12 noon to 2 pm at Carnegie Library, 192 Herne Hill Rd SE24 0AG.
Following the successful launch of this Forum on 16th February 2019, the Councillors are looking forward to further work in the Community to develop strategies to prevent and if possible eradicate this epidemic.
With your help at the first meeting, a range of areas were identified that needed to be tackled including:
- Poverty – especially in-work poverty
- School exclusion: disproportionately black children excluded from schools
- Lack of youth provision
- Mental health support
- Role of religious institutions (for example Churches, Mosques and Synagogues)
- Opportunities for young people
- Role modelling
- Housing shortages
You are invited to join us once more to develop our work in this area. Please come and take part with the help of speakers:
- Florence Eshalomi London Assembly Member
- Cllr Mo Seedat Cabinet Member for Community Safety
- Pastor Peter Adigun, Province Head, Celestial Church of Christ, Loughborough Junction
