Event Description: 


The Understanding Street Gangs training seminar aims to equip participants with a thorough appreciation of the factors that see young people become involved in serious youth violence and child and female sexual exploitation through gang membership and affiliation.

The training session is unique in combining the experience and expertise of former gang members with the specialist knowledge of sociologists of urban disorder and youth offending. More specifically, the authentic, first-hand testimony of facilitators – incorporated through case study material – is paired with content underpinned by cutting-edge academic research and knowledge of the scholarly literature around street gangs.

The training is delivered by Gangsline and will be delivered by Sheldon Thomas
