Twenty two areas in London, Liverpool, Manchester and the West Midlands are to receive funding and support to tackle gang and youth violence, the Home Secretary announced today.

The Ending Gang and Youth Violence Report, published on 1 November 2011, set out how £10 million of Home Office funding would be used to support up to 30 areas.

Money is being targeted at an initial twenty-two specific areas which, as well as cash injections, will receive support and advice from the newly established Ending Gang and Youth Violence Team.

Team of experts

The team, consisting of expert advisers from a range of statutory, voluntary and community sector backgrounds, is being headed by the Metropolitan Police’s former gangs lead Chief Superintendent Mick McNally who has been seconded to the Home Office.

Home Secretary Theresa May said:

‘We are providing practical help and support to those communities most affected by gang and youth violence.

‘The aim is to help local areas themselves understand the specific problems they face and to develop local and effective solutions.’

Details of the 22 areas and the funding they will receive can be found here.
