Safer London’s statement regarding violent crime

In the light of the loss of life due to violent crime, all at Safer London offer and extend their deepest condolences to the families and friends of those impacted.  We acknowledge the pain, grief and trauma that these events have caused to individuals, families and our communities.

Sherry Peck, CEO of Safer London stated “Every loss of life is a tragedy and any attempt to simplify the causes or label young people is misguided, unhelpful and discourages engagement in the problem solving process we must all focus on in order to prevent further tragedies.”

Safer London believe every young person has the right to live free from exposure to violence and crime.  We welcome referrals to our services of young people who are seeking to move away from violence and crime and keep themselves and their communities safe
