4FRONT launches new report with University of Sheffield, Unity Gym Project & Sheffield Flourish
The 4Front Project have collaborated with University of Sheffield, Unity Gym Project and Sheffield Flourish to produce a report based on a public symposium about youth violence, masculinity and mental health. The report makes 10 recommendations to improve the effectiveness of Sheffield's approach to preventing and curbing violence. These include measures to help families in deprived areas to claim benefits and maximise their incomes, reduce the number of school exclusions and make teachers more representative of the communities they serve.
Temi Mwale, Director of The 4Front Project, said: “As a London-based organisation, we believe that national collaboration is essential and we were delighted to work in partnership with Sheffield organisations to develop regional recommendations that will make a difference. We work tirelessly to enable young people to be at the forefront of change because we believe that those with lived experience of violence have a crucial role to play in designing strategies to build peace in our communities. Our recommendations are clear and actionable – we hope that they will be implemented promptly.”
