‘It Takes a Community to Raise a Child’ - Rally against youth violence

Launching the rally against youth violence in the Harrow Road on Saturday March 5th , Karen welcomed the parents and voluntary groups coming together under the banner ‘It takes a whole community to raise a child'.

Postcode-related gang violence has been worsening in the last two years, and it was especially heartbreaking to hear the plea for help from the mother of murdered local 22 year old Daniel Smith, who it is thought died as a result of mistaken identity. Too man y of our young people are living in fear, too many are being hurt and some are dying because we have not broken the spiral of anger and violence on the streets. We need a united community, and a strong youth service to turn this around".
