London Youth in partnership with SafeLives, will be hosting London’s next Youth Violence Network on Tuesday 26th January from 10.00am – 12.00pm via Zoom.


SafeLives is a national charity working to end domestic abuse. They have been looking at how young people talk, consider, discuss, and respond to harmful behaviour within their romantic relationships, how they might get support if they are experiencing harm themselves, worried about a friend or their own behaviour, and who they were likely to disclose to, so we can stop abuse before it starts.


We know from their Spotlights report Safe Young Lives, that young people are often overlooked and underrepresented in the national discussion on domestic abuse. Their newest work is with organisations already working with young people to make sure their needs aren’t overlooked and to develop a new narrative that can inform the national conversation. They want to share their latest research and talk to you about the opportunities for involving young people in that conversation.


This interactive session will include findings from their latest research with young people, with breakout rooms discussing;

  • How the SafeLives findings can help work with Youth Services
  • The importance of a Trauma-Informed Approach for young people affected by Domestic Abuse in Youth work (particularly during the pandemic)
  • Reaching Young people both online and offline

(More information will be provided closer to the date)
