Somali Youth Speak out Summit

Somali Youth Speak Out Summit 

In 2018, London witnessed a rise of violence that traumatised the Somali community. The rise in crime has accelerated, with the latest figures showing a 13% increase in all police-recorded offences across England and Wales and an even greater risk of violent offences including knife crime and violence against individuals. In recent years, many Somali youths have been involved in gang-related crimes and some have sadly lost their lives or have been lured into the cycle of criminality.
