Youth Violence

In an era when most crime is reported as reducing, violent crime (and in particular youth violence) is increasing in both severity and regularity.  At Through Unity we know that anger and violence are both the result of ‘hurt’ as well as the cause!  When a young person displays violent behaviour, we know that they are often crying out for help.  

Whilst such crimes need to be punished and the public protected, we also know that if we are to reduce such incidents, we must also engage with and work with perpetrators through Restorative Practice, Coaching, Youth Work and Informal Education.
