We help individuals entrenched in serious violence break away from the cycle they are trapped in. We help them to achieve peaceful resolutions for potentially violent conflicts and stop retaliations. The charity’s aims are to reduce shootings, stabbings and killings within communities. We aim to socially include disadvantaged people and assist them to achieve positive outcomes in their lives.
Our model relies on our Violence Interrupters: respected, trained community members who engage in high-risk conflict mediation to prevent the escalation of violent episodes.
We also mobilise local communities so that they are empowered to challenge the view that violence is an acceptable way of life.
