Young Londoners peers can have a strong influence on the direction of their lives.

We believe that violence and exploitation can be prevented from happening in the first place. Through targeted group work, training and support we are working alongside young Londoners so they’re able to support and be supported by their peers.

We work with them, giving them the knowledge and power to change their communities from within.

Bystander Group work

We work directly in classrooms, educating and empowering young Londoners on how to recognise, acknowledge and call-out unacceptable behaviours.

Our education work aims to give young Londoners the confidence to move from being passive to active bystanders. That they have the courage to challenge attitudes, beliefs and cultural norms, and stand up to behaviours that will lead to more serious forms violence and exploitation.

Can Safer London come to my school?

Currently our targeted education work is only delivered in Enfield.

We can provide one off sessions to school groups depending on capacity, please get in touch with the team education@saferlondon.org.uk for further information.

Targeted Group Work

We provide targeted group work sessions to support peer groups who may be at higher risk of exploitation or harm. Through this sessions we provide a safe space, where young Londoners can increase their awareness and confidence.

Based on the needs of the group we can tailor sessions for smaller or larger groups, either as one off sessions or a five week program. Through these sessions we build a relationship with the peer group and are available to offer additional one to one support if needed.
