Safer London was delighted to host Victoria Atkins the new Minister for Crime, Safeguarding and Vulnerability at our offices on 14 December to learn more about our work to support young people affected by gang violence, vulnerability and sexual exploitation.
Welcomed by our Chief Executive, Claire Hubberstey, the Minister was provided with an overview of Safer London’s work, which included presentations from frontline staff involved in Safer London’s Empower programme, London Gang Exit, Young Men’s Service and the Housing Reciprocal, together with specific case studies of how young people had benefited from Safer London’s support. The Minister also had the opportunity to watch a short film called Young London, which features a young Londoner’s concerns and issues.
“We were delighted to have the Minister visit us to speak to our frontline teams and learn about our work as well as the critical challenges so many young people face. We are grateful for the continued support from the Home Office which enables us to achieve positive outcomes for young people,” Claire Hubberstey said.
