Shifting our understanding of violence.
Is it a preventable epidemic health problem that can be treated… or not?

In December we’re partnering with our US colleagues, Cure Violence Global, to bring a series of webinars that delve into how violence is a public health issue and explore how we can reduce violence using community based interventions.

Cure Violence have successfully implemented community based violence intervention models in communities across the world. From the US to the Middle East, they have worked directly with communities to reduce violence from within.

Over the course of three webinars we will be exploring what the issues in London are and how the model can be used to empower communities in London, in order to reduce violence and exploitation.

We know that by working with the Londoners and communities directly affected by the issues that can cause violence and exploitation, we can help make London safer not just for them – but for everyone.


Webinar One:
Understanding the Science of Violence
Is violence transmitted like a disease? If so – how do you cure it?

In the first of our series we will discuss why violence is a public health issue.
