Join us at the Birmingham Conference and Events Centre on 10th March 2020, where you will hear from individuals who work in fields associated with the effects of gangs and youth violence. They will each offer a different perspective on causes, consequences and solutions to the problem.
Duncan Bew, trauma surgeon and director of major trauma at King's College Hospital
Duncan will not only share his experiences of treating the victims of knife crime and youth violence, but also his journey of understanding the issue and the work that he has done subsequently around prevention.
Simeon Moore a writer, musician and advocate for young people. He was a member of a notorious Birmingham gang
Simeon now works to tackle what he sees as the glamorisation of gang culture, which gives young people a bad example. He brings vision, creativity and influence to positively impact on young people's lives. Moore co-founded DatsTV, a new YouTube channel aiming to challenge and provide an alternative to those channels and music videos that glamorise gun and knife-culture, in order to encourage young people to walk away from gang violence.
Dr Lola Abudu - Deputy Director Health and Wellbeing, Public Health England, West Midlands Centre
Public Heath England have helped many professional organisations and agencies to learn, understand work with individuals affected by Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s).
More to be announced soon!
These differing perspectives will not only offer an insight into the effects and realities of gang membership for young people, but they will offer creative and realistic approaches for those who are attempting to work with this population.
