London Gangs: Societal Challenges and Business Responses

The disruption and danger that violent gangs can bring to London neighbourhoods has received much media coverage recently, with the Evening Standard running a high-profile campaign on tackling this urban problem – Frontline London.

London First’s Security & Resilience Network is now looking at the challenges associated with tackling gangs by trying to uncover some of the truths and myths, and putting the risk into perspective.

At a breakfast briefing on 11 September, co-hosted with the Mayor’s Office for Crime and Policing, an invited audience at City Hall will hear from those who are in the front line of policing, as well as youth employment workers and employers who have helped make a difference. It is appropriate then that the breakfast will be provided by the catering skills of former offenders who are now in useful employment with a restaurant group.

More information is available on the Security and Resilience website.
