About us

At Safer London, we believe that every young Londoner should feel safe and achieve their potential.

For over a decade, we’ve worked with and for young people, supporting them through their experiences of youth violence and sexual exploitation. We’re proud to be one of the first organisations to provide holistic child sexual exploitation support specialising in gangs, groups and peer-on-peer abuse.

Ultimately, making London safer for young people makes it safer for everyone. Through our projects we reduce violence and crime, promote gender equality and healthy relationships, and seek to find young people genuine alternatives to gangs and crime.

Our approach

Because the realities of exploitation and youth violence are often hidden, young people’s experiences are not always understood. Their vulnerabilities can be overlooked by traditional services, and indicators of risks are not spotted. This is where we come in.

We work locally with young people in the spaces where they feel safest. And we share our learning across London and beyond, giving other professionals the knowledge they need to support and safeguard the young people in their care.

We provide intensive, one to one support as well as group workshops, family support and training to empower young people to make real and lasting changes in their lives.
